Thank you for Diane Sylvain’s radiant essay,
"The Memory of Mountains." I am weary of wild-wo/man hiker goes
solo into wilderness and has a Big Moment. Diane’s tender
writing summed up for me the essence of the best of High
Country News: the illuminating of the threads that
connect us to each other, and to place.
restrained elegance and big heart were impeccable. She brought
welcome tears to my eyes.
