Praise for The Eight Master Lessons of Nature
“It’s hard to put down the phone and pay attention to the larger world–but as this insightful book makes clear, that kind of attention to the natural world can help set us on better paths for our lives, our societies, and our futures.”—Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy and Eaarth 

“This beautiful book will make your genes ache with homesickness for the mystery we sprang from. Luckily, it’s waiting right outside.  Let Gary Ferguson take you there. You’ll remember, and you’ll thank him.”—Alan Weisman, author of The World Without Us and Countdown

“I saw truth. I saw beauty, I saw a better future in these pages.”—John Lewis-Stempel, author of the bestselling Meadowland, The Running Hare, The Wood and Still Water

“In this expansive survey, nature writer Ferguson (Walking Down the Wild) argues that nature’s ‘harmony, balance, and rhythm’ can teach humans how to live peaceful, vital lives. Ferguson’s eight assertions each speak to the powerful connections he sees between the natural and human worlds, each beginning with his lushly delivered observations of nature.”—Publishers Weekly 

“A mellow, meditative book for nature lovers and those who want to reconnect with the world around them.”—Kirkus 

“Ferguson relates in details the wondrous intricacies found in nature and emphasizes the necessity of healing the planet, not just for the sake of the plants and other animals, but humanity as well. This inspirational work will spur readers to start noticing the world around them.”—Library Journal
