"In this delightful collection of essays, Mr. Crawford focuses on the beauties and pleasures of his natural surroundings and on small victories of self-sufficiency 'in a massively wasteful world.'"
"Crawford is a New Mexico treasure, and this book of essays is a gem."
"These two dozen essays are written by a master of the form with a precision and a love of language that make them a pleasure to read."
"Crawford writes with poetic precision, offering readers a chance to connect with nature, celebrate the commonplace and remember that we are all related."
"These are essays about economics of a different scale--about the sale of goods, garlic, and basil and the particulars of running a small village. These simple tales provide a tiny grounded amount of sanity in a country fixated on the Dow."
"Any assortment of essays by Stanley Crawford would be worth spending time reading. He is a writer whose company a reader can relish, and his varied topics all relate to life in an unusual part of the Southwest-northern New Mexico-a place that deserves his articulate attention."
