Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"All is well, for all is one;
the fluid spell is the cold stone;
However voluble, all life is soluble,
into my thought."




Meditations of Margaret Fuller presents sixty reflections from a pioneering thinker described as the mother of the women's movement in America. Margaret Fuller (1810-1850) lived to only forty years of age, yet her name ought to be as familiar as an honored river to every student of Nature and Spirituality. Friend of Emerson and Thoreau, she was a writer, editor, mother, partner and revolutionary. This influential woman loved the natural world and brought the lessons of the earth into a social, political and philosophical outlook that fired her world. Emerson described her as a brave and constant soul, one who had "a wonderful power of inspiring confidence and drawing out of people their last secret."


Chris Highland, a longtime progressive chaplain and teacher, places Fuller's vibrant selections alongside parallel quotations from Buddha and Tao, Torah and Gospel, Van Gogh and Chagall, Mary Oliver and Mahatma Gandhi and many other wise students of Nature. The author's stunning photographs illumine the challenging path offered by Fuller and her companions. Margaret Fuller's strong voice and mind are heard in these pages, calling us to wisely care for the outer and inner streams as master gardeners of Life.


Meditations of Margaret Fuller, as the companion volume to Meditations of John Burroughs, follows the popular series from Wilderness Press celebrating the wisdom of Muir, Thoreau, Emerson and Whitman. --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.

Format: Paperback
For anyone who has sat under the comfort of a big tree, sung along with a robin, sauntered under dazzling skies and felt you were loved and nurtured by the simplicity of it all--this is a must have in your pack book.
Chris has captured the essence of Fuller--her inspired works, her reflections, her life in this easy to read, robust book about the heart and soul of our Mother Earth. I am thrilled to see Margaret Fuller's name on a modern day book--she was a woman ahead of her time and deserves a nod from the modern naturlist.
