Remote: Finding Home in the Bitterroots
Skillfully intertwining history, outdoor adventure, and mystery, Lee's memoir is an engaging contribution to the growing body of literature on women and wilderness and a lyrical tribute to the spiritual connection between people and the natural world. Lee is a Regents Professor of Literature and Creative Writing at Washington State University, the Director of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness History Project, and a scholar-fellow at the Black Earth Institute.
In searingly honest, straightforward prose, rough house is tina ontiveros' attempt to carve out her relationship with her father, to understand her father and her family from an adult perspective. ontiveros is a writing instructor at Columbia Gorge Community College, book buyer at Klindt's Booksellers in The Dalles, and president of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association.
