    kindle ↠ Correcting the Landscape Paperback Correcting the Landscape'Correcting the Landscape' was one of the books I purchased with my new philosophy on buying book read those which win awards The cover of this book is a beautiful images of a snow capped mountain range mirrored in a lake However on closer inspection of the image you find that the whole image is actually upside down This is representative of what I learned from the story that sometimes the world you look at every day without uestion is actually upside down from how it should be I really liked the eye opening experience the lead character had in the book He struggled with trying to keep things unchanged and his role in his small community But when it did change he realized that his life became honest than ever before I hold that idea in mind on those days when work

    kindle ↠ Correcting the Landscape Paperback Correcting the LandscapeI thought this book was better than many of the one and two star reviews note It is about a man's struggle to find himself really and to find his own heart All of the other things that were used to market this book the touches of native culture and lifeways the environmental issues and even the death of the woman all feed back into this primary concern I feel this utilization of these various threads to enhance and expand the character and to both position him for a change and to push him to accept the change are the mark of

    kindle ↠ Correcting the Landscape Paperback Correcting the LandscapeCame across this book while weeding the fiction collection in the library where I work Cover blurbs made me want to give it a shot The strength of the narrator's voice and a sense of the fabric of the community in Fairbanks Alaska were very enjoyable I also liked the exploration

    kindle ↠ Correcting the Landscape Paperback Correcting the Landscapethis sure wasn't the Alaska of your childhood dreams with log cabins and romance and Jack London heroesYou don't defy the cold up here you adapt to itCar exhaust freezes in front of you so you have balls of fire and burning cold in your face at the same timeFor me it's still September 30th and tomorrow I will have a couple of additions to my #shortbookseptember tag meanwhile I have 2 books tonight which are both set in Alaska This one correcting the landscape is a journalistic approach fictional to some things in the state such as logging and concerns about estates the freezing cold and constant debate as to whether local hire's constitutional or not I have a friend who wants to move up there and possibly he could but after these two books I think that it would be a hell of a challenge even for a man that knows how to chop down a tree with an ax
