Reconnect with the natural world through essays that blend science and prose. In her debut work, journalist Josephine Woolington sheds light on diverse flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest. From the coastal tailed frog to yellow cedar, these stories encourage a more collective understanding of our natural wonders in a rapidly changing world.
"A deep dive into connections with the land and the life-forms that call the Pacific Northwest home. Fascinating. Sobering. Inspiring."
--Jane Billinghurst, co-author of Forest Walking: Discovering the Trees and Woodlands of North America
"In a series of beautiful essays on the foraging western bumble bee, the stunning sandhill crane, the long-lived yellow-cedar, and more, Where We Call Home takes us on a journey to explore the natural histories of ten native species in the Pacific Northwest. It is a powerful meditation on the past, present, and possible future of this land, its inhabitants, and our own relationship with nature."
--Lauren E. Oakes, author of In Search of the Canary Tree: The Story of a Scientist, a Cypress, and a Changing World
Josephine Woolington is a writer, musician, and educator. She previously worked at several newspapers in Oregon and is currently a freelance journalist, focusing on stories about the natural world. She lives in Portland.
