Item description for Wind River Winter by Virginia Stem Owens...

To read the books of Virginia Stem Owens is to understand what Dylan Thomas once called ?the mystery of having been moved by words.? Her style is contemplative, ecstatic, tender ? always yearning for a purer vision of reality and grace. Wind River Winter is her account of watching the world die and be reborn in the desolate Wind River mountains of Wyoming. By attuning her mind to the enormous cadence of autumn and winter, she contemplates the balance of life and death?the world's and her own. Her writing, as beautiful as the best of Annie Dillard or John McPhee, will appeal to anyone who finds the power of language as awesome a power as nature itself. Virginia Stem Owens is the author of several books, including the critically acclaimed Feast of Families. She is a frequent contributor to the Reformed Journal and other publications. She lives near Huntsville, Texas.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wind River Winter?

LIfe, Death and Resurection  Oct 19, 2003
Virginia Stem Owens journey from September to March in the Wind Rivers is not just a story about getting to the otherside of today. It is her story of dying, not a physical death but a spiritual death of sorts that she calls all of us to do over and over in life. This is a book of letting go of our past life and living our present.
"I went on down the trail, maneuvering the switchbacks and trying to keep my analogies under control. For I sometimes thought I heard wings overhead myself.
There is a dove in heaven, we know, that descends when the skies open, sometimes in fire. But perhaps there is also a hawk in heaven that swoops down on us with the gift of death to deliver us from our used-up past we have neither the courage nor the imagination to walk away from." (Owens 11)
