I think I have all of Chris Highland's books about the philosophers and have enjoyed them all. This one is just not quite the level of the others. Still nice and relaxing to read a few pages every day.

It's short and sweet, and made me buy more books on John Burroughs. What a fascinating man and a deeply touching life.

I had not heard of John Burroughs before I read this book, although I had read others of Chris Highland's books. This one is particularly powerful. Burroughs made me look at the natural world in ways I had not even known before. I recently took the book with me on an outdoor trip with friends, and read them several passages around the fire at night. Chris's book will be on my essential equipment list for future trips. Burroughs is a naturalist on a level with John Muir, and more folks should read what he has to say about the natural world, man and our own spiritual awareness. And the framework that Chris has created for Burroughs' writings makes them even more powerful.
