Nature Wisdom: Mystical Writer of the Big Sur-Monterey Coast, is a coffee table book -- an enlarged revision, in full color, of the author's black and white version, Shepherds of Pan on the Big Sur-Monterey Coast. Both books are a medley of provocative essays about the perennial philosophy linking some unlikely bedfellows: Robert Louis Stevenson, Richard Henry Dana, Gertrude Atherton, Jack London and 'The Bunch,' Robinson Jeffers, Jaime de Angulo, John Steinbeck, Eric Barker, and Henry Miller, with a tribute to the 'blood conscious' mysticism of D. H. Lawrence and a postscript on the 'organic psychology' of William James.
Under the spell of the alternately soft and violent landscape of California's Central coast, these writers intuited the awesome power of divinity in Nature and became what the author calls 'shepherds' of Pan, defenders of the ancient Greeks' metaphorical pipe-playing, hoof-stomping god of Nature.
This new edition is a multicolored meditation on a deeply rooted, and often overlooked, all-too-human need to reconnect with Nature, wellspring of our inner joy and psychic wholeness.
