Lopez meditates on the subject of road-killed animals. He relates his observations of them, occasional violent encounters with them, and thoughts about what to do, how to honor these sacrifices to humans' obsession with cars and speed. Rendered with his usual sensitivity to landscape, beauty and truth, in lovely English prose. Although published among his other essays, this piece has also been printed as a stand-alone coffee table book with tasteful and evocative woodcut prints by Robin Eschner.
