In Empiras Tapestry, a gravely ill woman begins to weave a luminous cloth in which is expressed all of the fervent desire she had for her life...In Homecoming, a botanist has become so caught up with his academic ambitions that he forgets the names of the wildflowers in his own woods until his young daughter reteaches him...And in The Entreaty of the Wiideema, an anthropologist traveling with an aboriginal people finds that, because of his aggressive desire to understand them, they remain for him always disturbingly unknowable.

These spare, haunting fictions, building cumulatively on each other, are marked by those qualities we have found in all of Barry Lopezs writing: a sense of the magic and marvelous strangeness of the world, respect for disparate ways of knowing and being, compassion for the human predicament, and a vibrant hope that comes from being alert and attentive to the complex beauties of landscape.

Field Notes is the final book of a loosely connected trilogy that includes Desert Notes (1976) and River Notes (1979) and stands with the best of Barry Lopezs remarkably varied work.
