520 2  "Rhythm of the Wild is a compelling memoir about Kim 
       Heacox's 30+ year relationship with the most iconic 
       landscape in Alaska, a sister book to his 2005 Lyons book 
       The Only Kayak, a PEN USA Literary Award finalist now in 
       its seventh printing. Woven throughout the personal 
       narrative will be stories on the human and natural 
       histories of the Denali National Park, garnished with a 
       conservation polemic, much as Edward Abbey did with Desert
       Solitaire, and Rick Bass has done with any number of books
       (that continue to sell well). Heacox will write of Denali 
       through an inspirational arc: to show how a place can 
       touch a life, even save a life, quietly, profoundly, day 
       after day, year after year, and how that saving multiplied
       by millions of lives over a century makes the world a 
       better place. Heacox makes the argument, through his 
       beautiful and impassioned prose, that we must save these 
       places so they in turn will save us. Denali National Park 
       is the most accessible subarctic sanctuary in the world, 
       and has awakened millions of people to what's authentic, 
       priceless and true. Any serious student of spirituality 
       and the American landscape must one day address his 
       relationship with Alaska, and once in Alaska, he must 
       confront Denali, the heart of the state, the state of the 
       heart"--Provided by publisher.
