In praise of prose

Document Actions

Just wanted to send a note of appreciation for Craig Childs' article "Unstoppable River" (HCN, 4/18/11). Childs' writing evokes the same feelings I get when reading Thoreau or Abbey, and he is a master of the "show me, don't tell me" style. Why have I not heard of Childs until now? Must be this rock I'm living under. Well, anyhow, thank you.
