Lassoing the Sun

  • Author: Mark Woods
  • ISBN: 9781250105899
  • Format: paper

The author is a newspaper writer who gets a grant to take a year off and write about his experience with America’s national parks. He spends a few weeks in a different park each month, all while processing his mother’s terminal diagnosis and death. This book was both a love letter to the national park system and a look into his experience processing the loss of his parents. I really enjoyed this one.
