Jay Schoenberger - I Am Coyote

For years Jay Schoenberger searched unsuccessfully for a compilation of the great wilderness writings.  He wanted a book he could throw in his pack and read in the great outdoors or enjoy at home when he itched for a connection to the backcountry. I Am Coyote: Readings for the Wild contains some of the most powerful wilderness-related essays, poetry, and passages.  The writings focus principally on the relationship between individuals and the wilderness they inhabit.  From Emerson, Muir and Shackleton to Kerouac, Stegner, and Dillard, the writings discuss the wilderness’s transformative and transcendent power on humans living in ephemeral conditions.

Jay Schoenberger is a writer and nature enthusiast, whose work has been featured in publications such as The Huffington Post.  He holds an MBA from Stanford University.

Anne Lamott - Small Victories

Anne Lamott writes about faith, family, and community in essays that are both wise and irreverent. It’s an approach that has become her trademark. Now in Small Victories, Lamott offers a new message of hope that celebrates the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives. Our victories over hardship and pain may seem small, she writes, but they change us—our perceptions, our perspectives, and our lives. Lamott writes of forgiveness, restoration, and transformation, how we can turn toward love even in the most hopeless situations, how we find the joy in getting lost and our amazement in finally being found.

Anne Lamott is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Stitches; Help, Thanks, Wow; Some Assembly Required; Grace (Eventually); Plan B; and Traveling Mercies, as well as several novels, including Imperfect Birds and Rosie. A past recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and an inductee to the California Hall of Fame, she lives in Northern California.
