Summary

Through the Woods is a journey through the rich beauty of America’s forests, sharing interviews with people whose lives are intertwined with America’s woodlands. This edition includes a new introduction by Gary Ferguson, who reminds us that now, more than ever, kinship with the earth is essential.

"By the end, you may find you’ve been seduced from the buzz and clutter of your life and won over to the certain old brand of quiet’ he set out to find.” 
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"Prose as inviting and uplifting as a walk in the woods." 
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

These woodland interludes are quick and bright, dazzling amid the bosky gloom. Writing so powerful that it’s hard not to share the author's delight to be back in the woods."
KIRKUS (starred review)

"Ferguson writes of woods and forest with fervor and reverence. This fierce devotion first learned in childhood colors the book's beautifully written prose, resulting in a lyrical ode to the individuals Ferguson encounters as he travels along the back roads of New England and the Midwest."
