I’m willing to pay good money for honest tales of beauty and despair

Chris Clarke has published a short excerpt from his upcoming Joshua tree book. It’s good. It promises great things to come. It’s also mildly sorrowful, but then, that’s what you’re going to get with good environmental journalism.

There’s also a deal where you can sign up for weekly stories on the desert, in return for a reasonable donation. I signed up for a year’s worth — you might want to consider chipping in, too, if you can afford it.

    Cool. Clarke’s writing is worth chipping in.

    Chris Clarke is an astonishing writer and I support him enthusiastically. The excerpts from his forthcoming book are breathtaking. Go read, and support him if you can. Well worth it.
