Contains a reflection for each of the 365 days of the year (each entry approximately one page long), celebrating holy days and holidays, feast days and famous days of the past and glimpses into the future. It marks accomplishments of yesterday that call the reader to live well tomorrow and points out "pedestrian" prophecies of the past, off-target predictions that show the folly of forecasting, especially those predictions that limit our possibilities. This is not a one-year almanac but will take ten years to digest its wisdom and wit.While debunking prophets of gloom and doom, The Old Hermit's Almanac does challenge readers to change themselves, to examine themselves for any narrowness off heart and mind, any prejudices, injustice or lack of faith, for a leisureless lifestyle that squeezes out silence, a sense of meaning, Compassion and playfulness. It invites the reader to live with hope in the

The environment may surround us, but when that environment is a natural wonder like Yosemite National Park, it also reaches what’s inside us. For Mark Liebenow, Yosemite did just that, and did so when he needed it most. In Mountains of Light, winner of the River Teeth Literary Nonfiction Prize, Liebenow takes us deep into the heart of this wilderness, introducing us to its grand and subtle marvels—and to the observations, reflections, and insights its scenery evokes. Acting as our guide, Liebenow calls on the spirit and legacy of naturalist John Muir to rediscover nature and recover his own exuberance for life. Whether celebrating the giant sequoias, massive granite mountains, and wild, untamed rivers, or losing himself on an unmarked trail, Liebenow is always accompanied by thoughts of his wife of eighteen years, whose recent and sudden death tempers and informs his journey. Interwoven with his experiences are the stories of the Native Americans who lived in the valley for thousands of years and of the early settlers who followed. Melding documentary with introspection, environmental reportage with a search for meaning, Liebenow’s work draws on the lore of geology, botany, biology, and history to show how each aspect of the environment is connected to the rest.
