Liberty Hardy

Senior Contributing Editor

Liberty Hardy is an unrepentant velocireader, writer, bitey mad lady, and tattoo canvas. Turn-ons include books, books and books. Her favorite exclamation is “Holy cats!” Liberty reads more than should be legal, sleeps very little, frequently writes on her belly with Sharpie markers, and when she dies, she’s leaving her body to library science. Until then, she lives with her three cats, Millay, Farrokh, and Zevon, in Maine. She is also right behind you. Just kidding! She’s too busy reading. Twitter: @MissLiberty

Terry Tempest Williams is one of the most incredible writers I’ve ever read, and her new book is simply stunning. With The Hour of Land she has given us not only a fascinating look at America’s National Parks, but also more insight into her beautiful mind and soul. She shows us that reflection through nature can be one of the most rewarding things there is, and something easily achieved if we just step outside. The Hour of Land by Terry Tempest Williams is a wonderful book about the importance of America’s gorgeous land and what it can teach us, and it will be sure to inspire more than a few road trips.
