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.
