An article about John’s career and the reasons he was chosen for the 2012 Duke LEAF Award:
“His use of sense of place and the land as the context for the human dramas that unfold in his narratives; the interweaving of environmental themes and conflicts with themes of human conflict and struggle, ultimately compelling us to confront on a visceral as well as intellectual level our strong material and spiritual connection to the land and, in the process inspiring us to value and steward our environment.”
