ABOUT TURN AROUND TIME
Most outdoor enthusiasts understand the phrase turn around time as that point in an adventure when you must cease heading out in order to have enough time to safely return to camp or homeregardless of whether you have reached your destination. For award-winning novelist David Guterson, it is also a metaphor for where we find ourselves in the middle of our lives, and his new narrative poem Turn Around Time: A Walking Poem for the Pacific Northwest explores this idea through a lyrical journey along a trail, much like those in Washingtons mountain ranges which he hiked while growing up. With a fast-moving, propulsive quality, Davids writing offers lush language, vivid imagery, and pacing that resonates as a journey on foot. Outdoor-lovers will relate to the physicality of hiking represented here, from endless trail switchbacks to foot and ankle pains as well as observant descriptions of the mountain landscape. Davids words are brought further to life by the delicate yet mythical illustrations by award-winning artist Justin Gibbens.
