"A long time ago, when the land was yet wrapped in grand sweeps of forest, when nearby meadows wore nothing but the scent of wildflowers..."
So begins the first tale of Spirits of the Wild, an enchanting collection of 60 nature myths from around the world, many of them hundreds - or thousands - of years old. Each myth is charmingly retold by Gary Ferguson, one of the West's best-loved nature writers.
Formerly a forest ranger-nationalist for the U.S. Forest Service in the Sawtooth Mountains of central Idaho, Gary Ferguson is now an author and award-winning freelance writer on science and nature for more than 100 national magazines.
