Gary Ferguson

Best-selling science writer and keynote speaker, Gary Ferguson, began his career chronicling the tracks humans leave in nature. Today, though, the author who Publishers Weekly calls “ever-evocative” says he’s working “to portray the tracks nature leaves in us.” Ferguson’s newest book, The Eight Master Lessons of Nature, has gained substantial acclaim throughout the U.S. and across the world.
