The Hour of Land

by Terry Tempest Williams

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

The time has come for acts of reverence and restraint on behalf of the Earth. We have arrived at the Hour of Land. What is your favorite national park? Do you know of Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa or the Gulf Islands National Seashore? In her book, The Hour of Land, Terry Tempest Williams takes us to 12 of her favorite parks, some well-known, some less so. Every tour is individual and unique.


There will be two presenters before breaking into small discussion groups:
1. The Literary Style of The Hour of Land by Sue Ellen Campbell, CSU.
2. Challenges Facing Rocky Mountain National Park by Tom Crow, US Forest Service.


Join the discussion on Wednesday, May 23, from 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM – followed by refreshments. The Hour of Land is available for $15.45 at Old Firehouse Books or from Amazon.


“Inspiring! Her organization The of Hour of Land is brilliant and invites discussion.” Dale Hein.
