We are excited to welcome renowned author Gary Ferguson to join us for Pages with Purpose!
Gary Ferguson has written for a variety of national publications, including Vanity Fair and Orion, and is the author of 27 books on nature and science. His memoir “The Carry Home: Lessons from the American Wilderness,” was described by The Los Angeles Times as “gorgeous,” with “beauty on every page.” For this discussion we will be looking at “The Eight Master Lessons of Nature: What Nature Teaches Us About Living Well in the World”, a riveting manifesto for the millions of people who long to forge a more vital, meaningful connection to the natural world to live a better, more fulfilling life.
Gary will be joined by Mary M. Clare, his wife and co-author of Full Ecology: Repairing Our Relationship with the Natural World, which was released in April of this year.
“Climate change is a strong reminder that it’s often the unpleasant circumstances of life that lead to healthier ways of knowing and being – ways we wouldn’t likely find otherwise. In that sense, upheaval – and climate change is nothing if not a stupendous upheaval – carries with it a chance to evolve into something better, to step beyond the false structures we’ve been leaning on for so very long.” – From Full Ecology, by Mary M. Clare and Gary Ferguson
“Ferguson relates in details the wondrous intricacies found in nature and emphasizes the necessity of healing the planet, not just for the sake of the plants and other animals, but humanity as well. This inspirational work will spur readers to start noticing the world around them.”—Library Journal on “The Eight Master Lessons of Nature”
