When Women Were Birds: Fifty-Four Variations on Voice

To Be a Woman

Terry Tempest William's lyrical voice is unique. She sounds depths of women's experiences in these variations. I was mesmerized and moved to tears several times. She understands and conveys in poignant incident, reflection, and image those qualities that depict what it is to be female in our society.

I will reread this book. It's a keeper, just outstanding
