Terry Tempest Williams "is a naturalist and writer best known for her book REFUGE: An Unnatural History of Family and Place, which chronicled the rise of the Great Salt Lake and flooding of the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge alongside her mother's cancer, believed to have been caused by fallout from nearby nuclear tests. Her other books include Pieces of White Shell, An Unspoken Hunger, and RED: Passion and Patience in the Desert. She has served on the governing council of The Wilderness Society, was a member of President Clinton's Council for Sustainable Development, and has won a Guggenheim Fellowship in creative nonfiction."
