Bookshop Santa Cruz staff recommendation:

The Story of My Heart: As Rediscovered by Brooke Williams and Terry Tempest Williams

This perfect little package of a book reads like a hymnal, a philosophical treatise, a love story, and a meandering walk up a grassy knoll. When the Williamses happened upon a rare copy of Jefferies’ memoir, it sparked in them an obsession with the little-known 19th-century British nature writer. What resulted is his original text set alongside their own musings and journeys, a balanced meditation on how one is to find a “soul-life” in the natural world, as it ever changes and disappears.
