Product Description


Beautifully written and observed, Illumination in the Flatwoods is a work of art worthy of its subjects. The book takes us to a place we might never have even dreamed and gives our minds the courage to believe things our hearts have always known. --Rick Bass - Praise for Illumination in the Flatwoods:

"If you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything" ~Rumi April 16 2014
By Deborah Hawes - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
To cherish all living things as sacred is a sign of wisdom. In "Touching the Wild" we encounter great wisdom. Living from a deep awareness of our oneness with all living things, Joe Hutto takes us along on a paradoxical pilgrimage: in touching the wild mule deer, we touch the deepest part of ourselves. Mysteriously, walking with them, we find we are walking on holy ground.

A touching visit to the wild but also a call to arms for the environment April 27 2014
By Kathryn B. Creedy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Having been attracted to this book by the extraordinary Nature documentary, I once again felt apart of the mule deer heard that so touched Mr. Hutto's life and research. The level of emotion amongst this species is so revealing about the greater life surrounding us. But this book is about far more than wild and human lives intersecting. This book is startling in its revelations of the ecological damage in the Rocky Mountain west caused by pollution, the increasing acidification of the soil and its damage to animals who starve because soil changes mean the loss of nutrients in native plants. It is shocking to hear that entire forests surrounding some of our most iconic places have died because of this. It is shocking to learn of the version of high-tech "hunting" that is disgustingly perverse has replaced the time-honored way of life that acknowledged the land and the sacrifice of the animal. While the human/deer interaction warmly illustrates the threatened lives of mule deer, the entire book joins those rare volumes such as Silent Spring in teaching us about the wild. Thank you, Joe Hutto for a warm and entertaining documentary and a very illuminating, easy to read, overwhelmingly important book.
