August Book Club Selection

MooreThe Natural History Society Book Club will meet at 3:30 on Monday, August 25, to discuss Wild Comfort: The Solace of Nature, by Kathleen Dean Moore.

In an effort to make sense of the deaths in quick succession of several loved ones, Kathleen Dean Moore turned to the comfort of the wild, making a series of solitary excursions into ancient forests, wild rivers, remote deserts, and windswept islands to learn what the environment could teach her in her time of pain.

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 migrating salmon in the dark—but it is also a profound meditation on the healing power of nature.

Please RSVP to Pat at jltnatural@saveland.org for location.
