Breathing Stone: Living Small in a Southwest Village

Breathing Stone is a cache of warm, minute observations of nature and neighbors the dogs and birds, cats and children, weather and weeds of rural New Mexico. It is both a small haven and a quiet suggestion that we observe our own lives, nudging us to catch the details so easy to forget. It is illustrated with field sketches from James’ own journal.

Betsy will share stories of her time in Placitas and be happy to sign copies of her books.
