If you find solace in the natural world, you’ll love Sheri McGregor’s new book. Nature’s Healing Spirit: Real Life Stories to Nurture the Soul connects the benefits of nature to the joy of reading.

This collection of true stories, essays, and a few poems by 34 accomplished writers, captures the imagination and engages the spirit. The essays’ settings are diverse: ancient canyons in the Southwest, wooded parks connecting major cities in the East, mountains that stand sentry in the Pacific Northwest, and your own backyard full of bugs. Nature’s Healing Spirit: Real Life Stories to Nurture the Soul provides a window into the personal lives of people like you, experiencing nature and how it heals: physically, mentally, and spiritually.

When a mother grapples with her son’s disorder, the rhythm of the sea holds a key. When a relationship ends in betrayal, the gift of closure arrives on wing. When a healthy man suffers a stroke, he discovers healing in nature’s time. From the mundane routines of modern life to the heart and soul of the human experience, these stories become your own. Savor these rich sensory experiences, and join the writers as they grow stronger, wiser, and happier.

Taking notice of nature in our daily lives can bring the benefits—more empathy, faster healing, and better mood, to name a few. Studies show that reading holds the same value. Explore the seasons of life through the eyes of writers whose voices are as unique as nature itself. Read the book and enjoy Nature’s Healing Spirit every day.
