For too long we have set ourselves apart from nature, seeing ourselves as superior, removed, independent. But in doing so, we have lost sight of all that the natural world can teach us. By keenly observing and admiring wildlife and their surroundings, Gary Ferguson shows us why sympathy is our greatest asset and crucial to our survival, that feminine rule is default in the natural world, and how even from the ashes of destruction, life is still able to thrive. Drawing on stories from art, science, philosophy, and history, Ferguson carefully unravels the dazzling web of connections that binds us to earth and the rich supply of wisdom that is stored here.
