Bookwoman says
A memoir of home, nature, and change in the American West, Light in the Trees makes cultural and environmental topics personal through a narrator’s travels between past and present, rural and urban. Growing up on a mountain, Folkins offers a small-town viewpoint of the Northwest. Sasquatch myths and serial killer realities, a runaway Appaloosa, and turbulent volcanoes chronicle a coming of age for a narrator and a place. Later, a Southwest move expands Folkins’ view of the West. From this perspective paired with frequent Northwest journeys, she explores challenges of the natural world, navigating new versions of self and home.

Gail Folkins often writes about her roots in the American West. Her nonfiction book, Texas Dance Halls: A Two-Step Circuit was a popular culture finalist in Foreword Reviews’ 2007 Book of the Year awards, while her essay “A Palouse Horse” was a Notable Essay in The Best American Essays 2010.
