Abstract:

"In an effort to make sense of the deaths of several loved ones, Kathleen Dean Moore turned to the comfort of the wild, making a series of excursions into ancient forests, wild rivers, remote deserts, and windswept islands to learn what the natural world could teach her about sorrow and gladness. This book is the record of her experiences. It?s a stunning collection of carefully observed accounts of her life?tracking otters on the beach, cooking breakfast in the desert, canoeing in a snow squall, wading among salmon in the dark? but it is also a profound meditation on the healing power of nature"--Publisher's description.
