The Awe of Nature

Genre: Non Fiction

Book Summary

The Awe of Nature is a thoughtful narrative that takes readers on an extraordinary journey from the wonders of the Amazon rainforest to the terror of forest fires in northern Saskatchewan.

Written in the same easy-to-connect-with style of Wild Roots - Coming Alive in the French Amazon, The Awe of Nature is rich with touching and inspiring anecdotes collected from authors across ages, continents, and cultures, which remind us that while the world has changed, the path toward a fulfilling and joyful life has not.

Gazing across an ocean of pristine rainforest, staring into the eyes of a wild crab dog, or hiking in the Sierra Nevada: These experiences have the power to detach us from the mundane concerns and consumer mentality that clutter our daily lives, and inspire us to become better versions of ourselves.

Awe engenders humility and a gratitude for life. Once we allow ourselves to truly experience that, it is ours forever. We need only shut our eyes and tune into its power to gain a sense of our own awesomeness—the freedom to simply be.

About the Author

Donna is a horticulturist and writer living in French Guiana on the fringe of the Amazon forest.

She left behind decades of corporate writing to write about nature, health, and living simply and sustainably — in essence, her code for living a good life. In her ramblings she hopes to give a glimpse of the fascinating world of the rainforest, reveal its profound effect on each of us and inspire readers to build a connection with the natural world.

It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to people who are not her kind of wild, but Donna refuses to own a mobile phone, rarely wears shoes, and is passionate about living on a whole food, plant-based diet. If she can’t be found swinging in a hammock with a laptop in hand or somewhere off the coast reading from her sea kayak, you will find her hurtling along the great Amazonian rivers in a sprint canoe.
