For over 40 years, I have been blessed to travel across the wilderness areas of our country. However, this book holds the promise of much more than a compelation of photographs. After years of wandering throughout the natural world, limitless revelations as to the importance of nature in our lives have slowly unfolded to me.

     Forever a teacher, this book affords me the opportunity to share some very important lessons that seem be lost upon our children and their families in today's fast paced culture. Lessons filled with meaning and messages. Lessons that have the power to enrich our days, shine wisdom into our souls, and change lives.

     Presently, this book is SOLD OUT. The profits have been transferred to the Meredith Williams

Foundation and distributed to benefit children. A portfolio of this book as well as other images germaine to these themes are presented below.

PEACE:  Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. -Osho

PERSERVERANCE: "If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together...there is something you must remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even when we're apart...I'll always be with you." -Winnie the Pooh

SIMPLICITY: " To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a birds nest or a wildflower in the spring- these are some of the rewards of a simple life." - John Burroughs
