What People are Saying About This

Gretchen Henderson

"Out of the Woods ultimately leads us not away from but into our backyards, ever attuning to "the big hum" and our collective contributions to the din, if we take the time to listen and engage with others, human and beyond.”

Richard Louv

“Julia Corbett’s exceptional, eclectic book of essays explores the overlapping worlds of bears and beetles, the mysteries of designing malls and bombing the moon, the wilderness that exists between language and the real. Here is the brave future of nature writing.”

Michael P. Branch

“An engaging, accessible, beautifully written celebration of our frayed relationship with the more-than-human world and the animals who are our kin…Julia Corbett explores the richness of nearby nature, reminding us that nurturing our bond with local landscapes is essential to the survival of the natural world and key to our own health and happiness.”
Michael P. Branch, author of Rants from the Hill and Raising Wild

James Barilla

Out of the Woods offers a nuanced and inspiring account of what it means to lead an environmentally aware life, discovering small miracles of the natural world in unexpected places but also searching for the truth behind the greenwashing, and trying to do better. Whether it’s contemplating an ersatz trout stream at the mall, or getting into a kerfluffle with a local merchant over energy efficiency, these scintillating essays are a tonic for confronting complacency in a time of ecological crisis.”
