One of the finest collections of inspirational nature writing ever assembled, The Soul Unearthed includes contributions by America’s best-loved writers on wilderness and spiritual transformation. This revised edition of the popular anthology includes 70+ stories, poems, essays, and interviews by such notable authors as Wendell Berry, Robert Bly, Matthew Fox, Joan Halifax, David Whyte, and Terry Tempest Williams.
The Soul Unearthed includes selections such as “Solitude Late at Night in the Woods,” “A Sacred Passage,” “Wilderness Kinship,” “Finding Our Place on Earth Again,” “Deep Ecology and Wonder,” “Fierce Landscapes and the Indifference of God,” and “The Practice of the Presence of the Wild.” This book shares the same territory as that covered by Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and Desert Solitaire. Through their experience of nature in its most primitive forms, The Soul Unearthed‘s contributors confront their relationships to themselves, to planet Earth, to Earth’s inhabitants, and to the divine within as well as without.
I highly recommend this book to all men and women who know that healing ourselves and healing the planet is the critical task of our time.

Cass Adams has given us a great gift, a compendium of sources of wisdom… This is essential magic, medicine for our time.
