More Information
The Wild Marsh is Rick Bass?s most mature, full account of life in the Yaak & a crowning achievement in his celebrated career. It begins with his family settling in for the long Montana winter, & captures all the subtle harbingers of change that mark each passing month ? the initial cruel teasing of spring, the splendor & fecundity of summer, & the bittersweet memories evoked by fall.

It is full of rich observation about what it takes to live in the valley ? ruggedness, improvisation &, of course, duct tape. The Wild Marsh is also tremendously poignant, especially when Bass reflects on what it means for his young daughters to grow up surrounded by the strangeness & wonder of nature. He shares with them the Yaak?s little secrets ? where the huckleberries are best in a dry year, where to find a grizzly?s claw marks in an old cedar ? & discovers that passing on this intimate local knowledge, the knowledge of home, is a kind of rare & valuable love.

Bass emerges not just as a writer but as a father, a neighbor, & a gifted observer, uniquely able to bring us close to the drama & sanctity of small things, ensuring that though the wilderness is increasingly at risk, the voice of the wilderness will not disappear.
