In his book,
The Four-Cornered Falcon: Essays on the Interior West and the
Natural Scene, Reg Saner ruminates on everything from the power of
wind to the naming of plants and animals. As varied and
thought-provoking as the terrain, Saner's essays meander through
familiar landscapes of the interior West, fusing details of the
natural world with the personal insights of a poet-naturalist. His
rambling, inquisitive prose evokes the beliefs of astronomers,
philosophers and ancient Indian cultures and affirms the connection
between human and natural history.
