Joshua tree book excerpt up at KCET

In March 2005, after record rains but before devastating wildfires that destroyed wide swaths of the Mojave National Preserve, I did a little thinking in one of my favorite places about solitude, growing up silent, campfires, and Dear old Dad. Oh, and yucca moths. Fleshed out slightly more, this KCET piece will be a chapter in the long-overdue Joshua tree book.

    Beautiful, Chris.

    and still I find I am not fully at ease until I need not talk to anyone

    Hmm, reminds me of someone very close.

    Reminds me of my escapes into the Arizona Strip and Toroweap. Great places to get away from people.
