When the San Francisco Chronicle described writer Barry Lopez as "the nation's premier nature writer," Lopez responded, "I'm not writing about nature. I'm writing about humanity. And if I have a subject, it is justice. And the rediscovery of the manifold way in which our lives can be shaped by the recovery of a sense of reverence for life."
