Elegy From The Edge Of A Continent

30.00

Ten-years-in-the-making, Austin Granger’s “Elegy from the Edge of a Continent: Photographing Point Reyes” is a earnest paeaen to an extraordinary place. It is a book about Sir Francis Drake and the Golden Hind, Miwok Indians and eucalyptus trees, sea lions and elk. It is a book about wind and fog, lupine and firs, starfish and granite and daffodils. Combining haunting black and white photographs with wide-ranging prose that is at turns penetrating, humorous, and poignant, “Elegy from the Edge of a Continent” is both a heartfelt paean to a singular land, and a luminous meditation on how we make, and are made by, the world around us. It is, above all, a work of love.

Elegy from the Edge of a Continent’ contains some of the most beautiful and evocative photographs of Point Reyes I’ve ever seen, and the writing perfectly captures the wild, incredible landscape… (The work) is masterful, and engaging, and unique. It deserves a wide audience!

Austin Granger’s ‘Elegy from the Edge of a Continent’ stunned me-and thrilled me-from beginning to end. It is an ecstatic paean to a place, that reminds me of Henry Beston’s ‘The Outermost House’ (although its intent is quite different). Its transformative language explores this place so deeply and profoundly that the reader comes away with a whole new relationship to all places and to life itself. The book is, in my mind, one long, meticulously crafted, prose poem, with immense power. I think that it actually has the potential to become a classic.
