This Little Wild Bouquet is a book-in-progress that will eventually contain essays on eleven distinct North American places. Falling somewhere between Joan Didion's Slouching Towards Bethlehem, Terry Tempest Williams' Refuge, and Aldo Leopold's Sand County Almanac, it will offer readers a creative nonfiction view of the social and ecological situation in each of the places it addresses.
My hope is that by bringing these places to life for the reader, it will become clear that much of the way each of us relates to the environment is related to our local or regional perspectives on it. And maybe, just maybe, being able to feel like you're in another place for a dozen pages will be enough to bring these other perspectives into focus, and to offer inspiration to look at the natural world (and how we relate to it) differently in our own daily lives.
