Gretel Ehrlich
Gretel Ehrlich moved to Wyoming in 1975. Her book, The Solace of Open Spaces is a record of her first years living on the range, cowboying and herding sheep. She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Whiting Award, three National Geographic Expedition Grants, and an Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. She has written 15 books: narrative essays, poetry, short stories, a novel, travel, and a memoir about being hit by lightning on her ranch, A Match to the Heart. She has traveled by dogsled with subsistence Inuit hunters at the top of Greenland for twenty years, and as a result has written extensively about climate change. Her latest book, Facing the Wave won the 2014 PEN USA Award for Nonfiction and was nominated for the National Book Award. She is at work on a novel.
