A book took me back to Colorado

Reading An Unspoken Hunger by Terry Tempest Williams, I felt her obvious passion for the earth and especially the western desert. Her love for the land, her eloquence in advocating environment protection and the detailed and vivid description of water, rock, and land was so engaging that she drew back a lot of missing memories I had when I visited Colorado. I felt the dry wind blowing on my face again, I felt thirsty in my throat, I heard the country songs in my mind and I smelt the salty and subtle smell of the rocks.
