Through the grace of her stories we come to see how a lack of intimacy with the natural world has initiated a lack of intimacy with each other. Williams shadows lions on the Serengeti and spots night herons in the Bronx.

Terry Tempest Williams inherits this tradition of ecobiography from Abbey and
further defines it in her Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place, an
example of unabashedly autobiographical nature writing. I choose Williams's text

its similarity to other contemporary ecobiographies cited throughout this
sourcebook, especially Kathleen Norris's Dakota and Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at
Tinker Creek.

History of Family and Place Ufuk Özdağ Hacettepe University Abstract: Since the
times of Henry David Thoreau, American nature writing has emphasized the
intrinsic value of nature and of wildlife. And yet, the political discourse still retains
an anthropocentric stance and confers utilitarian value to the land and to
nonhuman life on earth. Leading American conservationist and nature writer
