The Sky, The Stars, The Wilderness.
by Bass Rick.

Publisher Information:
Houghton Mifflin, Boston: 1997.

A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. All three novellas in this collection examine a different aspect of the predator-prey relationship of humans with the natural world. In "The Myths of Bears," a mountain man tracks his wife through a snowy landscape. She wants to get away, "but not too far away," and she eludes him with just enough distance to evoke a passionate response "that he hasn't felt in a long time." The second selection, "Where the Sea Used To Be," tells the story of two rival oil men looking to find and claim the black gold of the earth in the foothills of the Appalachians. In the title story, a woman returns to the west Texas ranch where she was raised, reflecting on her childhood, spent mostly outdoors, and mourning the loss of all the "wild things" in her lifetime.
