Books of Interest


My First Summer in the Sierra by John Muir.

A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold.

Coyote’s Guide to Connecting with Nature by Jon Young, Ellen Haas, Evan McGown.

Tom Brown’s Field Guides.  You can learn how to make a debris hut in order to survive the night or, if not in such a dire situation, you can take a walk, wake up your senses and get reacquainted with nature.

Listening Below the Noise: A Meditation on the Practice of Silence by Anne D. LeClaire.

Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder by Richard Louv.

The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life by Thomas Moore.

Steering by Starlight and other books by Martha Beck.

Ecopsychology: Science, Totems, and the Technological Species, edited by Peter Kahn and Patricia Hasbach.

Sacred Path Cards by Jamie Sams.

My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor.

The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton.  Originally published in 1653, the book drew me in with its detailed observations of nature, and then charmed me with milk-maids’ songs and jolly characters.  No wonder it’s been around for several centuries.
