April 21, 2023, 7PM at Back of Beyond Books: Author Reading and Signing with Morgan Sjogren and Her Book, Path of Light

Path of Light  treks back through time as author and explorer Morgan Sjogren retraces the 1920s expeditions led by Charles L. Bernheimer into the heart of Glen Canyon and Bears Ears National Monument. Using journals and photographs from the expeditions to recreate these historic routes, Sjogren encounters powerful perspectives and stories about land management and human rights issues that carry forth into the present. Mindful of the pervasive effects of colonization and motivated by a deeply personal care for the land, Sjogren asks what it means to be an explorer while learning from the people who have loved the land for millennia and moments. Path of Light walks towards an illuminated understanding of the landscape and its history in an effort to help preserve it for the future.

Morgan Sjogren  is an author, explorer, and defender of wild places. Her writing focuses on human-powered adventure, public lands, conservation, history, travel, and food. Sjogren devotes much of her time to advocate, educate, and inspire others to help protect endangered landscapes and the environment. She is the author of The Best Bears Ears National Monument Hikes, Outlandish, and The Best Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Hikes. A nomad by nature, Sjogren lives on the Colorado Plateau and feels most at home in the wild.
