Overview

The Sylvan Path mixes a Barry Lopez-style portrayal of our natural beauty with a William Least Heat Moon-like celebration of our people - people whose lives are still firmly tied to the last great forests: guides and outfitters, tribal elders, moonshiners, trappers, and faith healers. Ferguson meets and interviews people who don't just love the woods, but practice them. Men and women whose lives still turn on that one thing that long ago nearly everyone swore would keep America dancing for a thousand years - the woods. With a Thoreau-like reverence for nature and the individual, this intensely evocative book seeks to recover the soul of America.
