"In the literature of place, Deborah Tall’s book stands out for its delicacy, range of learning, and refreshing frankness."—Phillip Lopate

"A worthy contribution to the growing field of landscape studies. . . . Like Thoreau, who claimed to have travelled much in Concord, the author of From Where We Stand has travelled much—widely and deeply—in the Finger Lakes."—New York History

"There has been a spate of books nominally about finding a sense of place but more accurately described as quests for community, or for home. . . . The best of the lot is Tall’s book about putting down roots in Geneva, New York."—Utne Reader

  From Where We Stand

  Deborah Tall (1951–2006) is the author of five collections of poetry, and two prose works—a memoir of her life in rural Ireland in the 1970s, The Island of the White Cow, and a book-length lyric essay, A Family of Strangers, about history, silence and family secrets. For many years, she taught writing and literature at Hobart and William Smith Colleges and edited the literary journal Seneca Review.
