Brooke and Terry Tempest Williams came across a copy of British nature writer Richard Jefferies' The Story of My Heart in a small Maine bookstore. The beautiful love letter to nature intriqued the couple and inspired a journey, strenthening Terry and Brooke's relationship with each other and with the natural world.
Originally published int 1883, The Story of My Heart explores the existence of a "soul-life" as Jefferies experienced while wandering in England. With and introduction by Terry and essays by Brooke alonside Jefferies' original work, these two writers contemplate dilemmas of modernity, the intrinsic need for wildness, and what it means to be human in the 21st century.
