A Song for the River

Texas Monthly

“Author Philip Connors is a fire lookout who has spent more than a decade of summers keeping watch over New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness. It’s the perfect place to hide and write a book and Connors did so brilliantly with A Song for the River. In it, he masterfully weaves together unyielding wildfires and death, including the loss of friends and colleagues in and around the Gila wilderness. He merges the story of a tough landscape through stories of unforgettable people. His prose is simple, yet eloquent and elegant, and reminds you, amid talk of walls, of the powerful forces of nature.”
- Alfredo Corchado, author of Homelands: Four Friends, Two Countries, and the Fate of the Great Mexican-American Migration, December 22, 2018  Visit Website
