Teaser Tuesday: Where the Wind Dreams of Staying



In the desert, the sun swaggers like a bully. Even in April the southern Nevada sky is barely big enough to hold all the light.

-- Where the Wind Dreams of Staying: Searching for Purpose and Place in the West by Eric Dieterle, a new memoir published by OSU Press.

The memoir is more a collection of essays than a linear autobiography, which I am happy with because I find the pot luck approach more interesting. This teaser is from an essay called "Virgin Territory."



Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by The Purple Booker, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Beautiful and creative description in your excerpt. This sounds like a book I'd enjoy.
My Tuesday post features MOONRISE.

Sounds interesting especially the mixed views.

Essays sound like an interesting way to handle a memoir, rather than trying to tie everything into one story.

What a beautiful, powerful line.
