Trespass: Living at the Edge of the Promised Land by Amy Irvine
363 pages / Natural history and Memoir / 3 out of 5 stars
I bought this book for two reasons: I love reading about and exploring Southern Utah and I suspected that I was related to the author. My great grandmother was an Irvine from Scotland, but my family has lost all contact with any of the Irvines we may be related to. Amy Irvine, the author, writes quite a bit about her family history, so I looked her people up on familysearch.org. It turns out we are not related. Additionally, I didn’t care much for the narrative of the book, although I did enjoy the way she described Southeastern Utah, and her writing has made me eager to get out there, hopefully sometime this summer.
