Having lost the joy he once took for granted, McCullough hit bottom and stumbled forward, with nothing left to do but walk the ocean shore near his home. Then he began to notice the pelicans. Meditating on these evolutionary "survivors," he marveled at their development of graceful yet resilient techniques for flourishing on the margins of the earth, a strange and mysterious place at the border of land and sea. Drawing strength from nature almost unconsciously, he gradually recovered a sense of hope about the life he thought had been lost to him forever.
Courageously written and profoundly moving. The Wisdom of Pelicans is the story of a path to healing and renewal and a deeply affecting meditation on life, loss, and faith. It is a heartfelt and moving tale of a survivor who, in spite of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, found a new spirit, a deeper faith, and, ultimately, a clearer understanding of himself.

What People are Saying About This
An honest and unsparing account of a dark time and of a search for light.
This is a searingly honest account of one man's descent into a personal hell of despair and recrimination, only to be surprised to find God there and the subsequent exhilarating discovery of grace as he surfaced, guided by the wisdom of pelicans. A beautiful and deeply moving story.
