Spirits of the Wild is an enchanting collection of sixty nature myths from around the world, many of them hundreds, even thousands of years old. Each myth is charmingly retold by Gary Ferguson, one of the West's best-loved nature writers. You'll read "The Healing Waters" from the Iroquois, "Why Spider Has a Small Waist" from Liberia, and "When Sun Married Moon" from Togo, Africa; about lovers whose tears formed the rains in Vietnam; of how the meadowlark found his voice; about the first evergreen trees and the last bumblebees who sang like birds; and a whimsical story of how the hare climbed a spiderweb to heaven and stole the sun. Illustrated with exquisite line drawings by Douglas Smith
The carry home by Gary Ferguson( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 298 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"--
