[EAN: 9780307474643], [PU: Vintage Books], This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Quietly powerfulBell's writing elegantly balances pain and love, solitude and family ties, finding solace both in human relationships and in relationships to animals and the Western landscape. Big and open-hearted like the Wyoming sky, this memoir is a pleasure to read." -Catherine Hollis,Sacramento Book Review "[Claiming Ground] can be savored for the lyricism of its language, its insight intoa distinct American region, and as a meditation on physical work and the role it played in one woman's life." -Julie Foster,Minneapolis Star Tribune "Redolent of wide-open spaces and valley bottoms where beasts find water in reedy swamps sheltered by cottonwoods[Bell] writes so honestly and beautifully that I dared not skip a word for fear I'd miss another moment of grace or insight. This is a book to savor, and to read and reread." -Lois Atwood,The Providence Journal "Open, honest, strong and unflinching." -Leslie Doran,The Durango Herald "Part lyrical remembrance of a deeply intense relationship with nature in a sweepingly majestic landscape, part unswerving self-analysis,Claiming Grounddelivers both beauty and unabashed reflection.But it is not only a looking back; it is a guidepost to the possibilities ahead-the surprises that await us down our own trails." -Linda Stankard,BookPage "Claiming Groundmore than holds its own against any survivor narrative of failed love and misplaced ambition, against any epic quest for understanding and mercy and in language so tempered, spare and beautiful that it rivals any poem's. Worth is rarely the measure of a book's success, but if ever a memoir deserved to be a bestseller,Claiming Groundsurely does." -Margaret Renkl,Nashville Scene "Bell's extraordinary ability to impart a true sense of place on each page reveals a stark and stunning landscape populated with a playbill of peculiar personalities attracted to a life of solitude and hard physical work, and her life within this remarkable world." -Publishers Weekly, starred review "A work of descriptive virtuosity and a hard, honest pull through rough emotional terrain-an exemplary memoir." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review "I LOVEDClaiming Ground! It is absolutely wonderful! Generally I'm not a huge fan of memoirs, but I AM a huge fan of nature, animals, Wyoming and matters of the heart. Laura Bell enhanced all of these for me with her tender and graceful prose. Her story of living a mostly solitary life as a sheep herder in back country Wyoming, while searching for inner peace and a place and family of her own, touched me personally in so many ways. I loved her descriptions of the Wyoming mountains and wilderness, the seasons, the wildlife; but the lessons she learned as an 'instant mother' to two young girls who had recently lost their biological mother, that is what grabbed my heart and squeezed. The last paragraph, particularly the last three sentences are amazing! I just cannot wait to tell others of her incredible story and especially to share this with book clubs." -Linda Grana, Lafayette Books (Lafayette, CA) "I began reading Laura Bell'sClaiming Groundthinking I'd read a book about a woman living in those mysterious, gypsy-like sheep trailers that dot the Western basin and range. Instead, I found the beautiful and moving story of a woman searching for place, a home, in the Intermountain West.

Claiming Ground - used book

1977, ISBN: 9780307474643

ID: 11415954

In 1977, Laura Bell, at loose ends after graduating from college, leaves her family home in Kentucky for a wild and unexpected adventure: herding sheep in Wyoming's Big Horn Basin. Inexorably drawn to this life of solitude and physical toil, a young woman in a man's world, she is perhaps the strangest member of this beguiling community of drunks and eccentrics. So begins her unabating search for a place to belong and for the raw materials with which to create a home and family of her own. Yet only through time and distance does she acquire the wisdom that allows her to see the love she lived through and sometimes left behind. By turns cattle rancher, forest ranger, outfitter, masseuse, wife and mother, Bell vividly recounts her struggle to find solid earth in which to put down roots. Brimming with careful insight and written in a spare, radiant prose, her story is a heart-wrenching ode to the rough, enormous beauty of the Western landscape and the peculiar sweetness of hard labor, to finding oneself even in isolation, to a life formed by nature, and to the redemption of love, whether given or received. Quietly profound and moving, astonishing in its honesty, in its deep familiarity with country rarely seen so clearly, and in beauties all its own, "Claiming Ground "is a truly singular memoir. "From the Hardcover edition." Claiming Ground Bell, Laura, Vintage Books
