Synopsis: Beginning with his hundred-mile hike to reach the Lower 48's most remote place, Ferguson gives us a fascinating, personal account of three months living alone in the wilderness - a summer spent monitoring grizzly bears and wolf packs in Hawks Rest, the heart of the greater Yellowstone ecosystem. Through his encounters with park rangers, wildlife biologists, outfitters, and intrepid visitors, Ferguson weaves a poignant story of a land under siege. Opinionated first-hand accounts illuminate the dream and the difficulty of preserving the Yellowstone wilderness - America's first national park and a touchstone of all things wild. Ferguson's previous writings on nature have been well received. Publishers Weekly wrote about The Sylvan Path: "In prose as inviting and uplifting as a walk in the woods, naturalist Ferguson shares his lifelong passion...with a sense of discovery, humor, and deep reverence for his subject, [he] reclaims the natural world for himself, and for the reader as well." William Kittredge praised Walking Down the Wild as "a clear-eyed vision of what's at risk in the battle over wilderness in America. This is a terrific book."

About the Author: Author Gary Ferguson has appeared on more than 200 television and radio programs across the country. His keynote addresses have been popular with a wide variety of conservation groups, including the Audubon Society, Sierra Club, The Wilderness Society, Save the Redwoods League, and the Land Trust Alliance. As a writer, Gary has worked for dozens of national publications—including Vanity Fair, the Los Angeles Times, and Outside Magazine—and is also the author of twenty–two books on nature and science. Hawks Rest: A Season in the Remote Heart of Yellowstone (National Geographic Press), was the first nonfiction work in history to win both the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award and the Mountains and Plains Booksellers Award for Nonfiction. Decade of the Wolf (Globe–Pequot), as well as The Great Divide (W.W. Norton), were Audubon Magazine Editor's Choice selections. His latest book is a wilderness–based memoir titled The Carry Home (Counterpoint Press).

Ferguson was the 2002 Seigle Scholar at Washington University, St. Louis, the 2007 William Kittredge Distinguished Writer at the University of Montana, and a visiting writer in the graduate writing program at the University of Idaho. He currently serves on the faculty of the Rainier Writing Workshop Masters of Fine Arts program, at Pacific Lutheran University. Gary lives with his wife, Mary, in Montana's Beartooth Mountains, as well as in Portland, Oregon.
