Overview

A compilation of sixty insightful reflections from John Burroughs, the great naturalist from New York whose friends included Walt Whitman, John Muir, Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. This is the sixth book in the popular series by Chris Highland that includes Muir, Thoreau, Emerson, Whitman and Fuller. The editor draws upon years as an interfaith chaplain and student of Nature to highlight the best of Burroughs' spiritual side. Drawing from Burroughs' many books, this collection presents his close observation of wild Nature in an easy daily-reading format. Burroughs was a radical lover of the cosmos who saw that 'the earth is divine, and . . . God is everywhere.' His creed was 'not even a faith; it is a love, an enthusiasm, a consecration to natural truth.' With selections placed alongside quotations from an incredible diversity of thinkers and sprinkled with crisp black and white photographs, this work takes an essential place in this series packed with wisdom for the path.
