Abstract

the sons hiking, river rafting, fi shing, and camping, and he hopes their futures hold the kinds of wilderness ecstasy he has known. As he reviews his life, he generously credits not only the woman he ultimately married but his father and his park service mentor, Sage DeGroot. Th ese men push him to walk down and up trails of his choosing, to pursue his love of the worlds beyond the built environment, and to follow his imagination and passion as a writer. By the time Fromm’s fi nal week rolls around, time speeds up as he tries to slow it down, grateful for his ten- miles- a- day idyll. In Th e Names Fromm teaches us again how love of family ultimately blends with love of backcountry. Th e physical separation belies the fundamental unity, and we can’t read or write or live that lesson often enough. O.
