"As with any collection of essays, some are more interesting than others. Fortunately, most are sure to captivate you. This is definitely a book you will want to put on your summer reading list."
—Lake Tahoe News, book review
"These accounts speak with awe, respect and sometimes humor about the vibrancy of many natural locales. In face of what often feels likes relentless human-centeredness, Permanent Vacation, volume 2, offers the bracing reality of people encountering the earth on the earth’s sempiternal terms. Difficulties and rewards abound: the sum of these thoughtful voices confirms the oneness of wildness and the importance of national parks."
—Baron Wormser, author of The Road Washes Out in Spring: A Poet’s Memoir of Living Off the Grid
