By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The writer Amy Irvine joined us earlier this year to talk about her book called "Trespass." Four months after her father had committed suicide, Amy left Salt Lake City for the high desert town of Monticello. As a wilderness activist and apostate Mormon, she was the ultimate outsider in a community of Mormon ranchers. At its heart this book is an elegy to her father, to the desert and to the connection between body and nature. (Rebroadcast)
