merging awareness creativty and nature

          Scheduled for publication in 2018, this is the result of Joseph's Artist-in-Residence for the BLM.  In cooperation with Colorado Canyons Association, the interpretive partner of the BLM in Grand Junction, this book will feature two dozen essays written in 2017 as Joseph explored the fascinating canyon country that is a designated National Conservation Area.  His fascination with the ancient geology of the Uncompahgre Plateau and adjacent canyons leading to the Gunnison River describes a history of over 1 billion years displayed in the rock-walled canyons of this part of the ancestral Rocky Mountains.  As with his other essay collections, and his fiction, Joseph not only explores the scenery, but the meanings of time and the history of life.
