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
as exemplary of this genre because of its connection to Abbey's and because of
its similarity to other contemporary ecobiographies cited throughout this
sourcebook, especially Kathleen Norris's Dakota and Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at
Tinker Creek.
