"Gary Ferguson spins tales about the vivid characters who have peopled this majestic region, from the original Indian inhabitants and their interactions with European explorers to the delirious victims of gold-rush fever, to hippies in the sixties, to today's adventure travelers in high-tech outerwear toting satellite phones into the wild. Throughout, he explores the ebbs and flows of America's attitude toward the vast expanses that embody our sense of freedom."--BOOK JACKET
The carry home by Gary Ferguson( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The nature writing of Gary Ferguson arises out of intimate experience. He trekked 500 miles through Yellowstone to write Walking Down the Wild and spent a season in the field at a wilderness therapy program for Shouting at the Sky. He journeyed 250 miles on foot for Hawks Rest and followed through the seasons the first fourteen wolves released into Yellowstone National Park for The Yellowstone Wolves. But nothing could prepare him for the experience he details in his new book. The Carry Home is both a moving celebration of the outdoor life shared between Ferguson and his wife Jane, who died tragically in a canoeing accident in northern Ontario in 2005, and a chronicle of the mending, uplifting power of nature. Confronting his unthinkable loss, Ferguson set out to fulfill Jane's final wish: the scattering of her ashes in five remote, wild locations they loved and shared. The act of the carry home allows Ferguson the opportunity to ruminate on their life together as well as explore deeply the impactful presence of nature in all of our lives. Theirs was a love borne of wild places, and The Carry Home offers a powerful glimpse into how the natural world can be a critical prompt for moving through cycles of immeasurable grief, how bereavement can turn to wonder, and how one man rediscovered himself in the process of saying goodbye"--
Land on fire : the new reality of wildfire in the West by Gary Ferguson( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wildfires are burning longer and hotter than ever, affecting communities and the web of life throughout the West. Fires of recent years have been among the most devastating on record: millions of acres have burned and more than a billion dollars spent controlling them. In Land on Fire, acclaimed nature writer Gary Ferguson explores the fascinating science behind this phenomenon and the ongoing research to find a solution. This gripping narrative details how years of fire suppression and chronic drought have combined to make the situation so dire, brings to life the extraordinary efforts of those responsible for fighting wildfires, and deftly explains how nature reacts in the aftermath of flames. Dramatic photographs reveal the terror and beauty of fire, as well as the staggering effect it has on the landscape."--Jacket
