Look for a New Book coming in 2018!


MJM 1.5 cov 

Meditations of John Muir, over 50,000 copies sold (15th printing in 2018)

Amazon Review: “There was no gift or treasure that I could buy that is comparable to the deeply moving passages and meditations in this book. All of the meditations/passages are truly captivating. The poetic quality of Muir is deeply stirring and created this sense of urgency for me to stop, appreciate and humble myself to the complete and utter majesty of nature. This book is to be both consumed and savored for the magical and soul-stirring work of art it is. Absolutely breathtaking.”

Publishers’ Weekly:  “Highland has juxtaposed long quotes from Muir’s journals with short reflections drawn from sacred texts the world over. With its small size and attractive format, this book makes the perfect addition to every naturalist’s knapsack.”

  1. Let me introduce you to a book you should read: “Swift Currents” by David Grim. It is about history/fiction in the Lowcountry. Great book with wonderful insight into the history of that part of the country.
