Trace - Lauret Savoy

Staff Pick
Lauret Savoy's Trace is an intimate account of remnants of the past visible in our natural surroundings for those willing to look, audible in our language to those able to hear.  A geologist, Savoy describes landscapes with a knowing eye that retains a sense of wonder. And as someone of a mixed racial background, she examines the interactions of people who themselves left traces upon our environment. Her description of how geologic and historical time both leave traces in our present makes this a thoughtful book for those who are looking to expand their horizons.
