Wild Comfort: The Solace of Nature by Kathleen Dean Moore

In an effort to make sense of the deaths in quick succession of several loved ones, Kathleen Dean Moore turned to the comfort of the wild, making a series of solitary excursions into ancient forests, wild rivers, remote deserts, and windswept islands to learn what the environment could teach her in her time of pain. This book is the record of her experiences. It’s a stunning collection of carefully observed accounts of her life—tracking otters on the beach, cooking breakfast in the desert, canoeing in a snow squall, wading among migrating salmon in the dark—but it is also a profound meditation on the healing power of nature.

Wild Comfort

This collection of essays, reveries and meditations interweaves keen observations of the natural world with descriptions of wilderness travel, conversations, stories and philosophical musings. Friends and family died by drowning, disease and accident, and, as Moore admits, "my life became an experiment in sadness. She turned to the natural world for solace. This is the wildest comfort. Moore takes an artistic risk by laying the foundation for her book in personal grief. Readers are inclined to grant sympathy for the author's losses, but Moore must then write a world that effectively represents these places with images so potent and alive that readers feel the solace.
