"Through the Pacific Northwest forests to the Alaskan tundra and along the rugged coast of California, Dawn Again is a memoir of exploration and survival from a stunning new voice. Doniga Markegard's extraordinary, singular journey begins at a wilderness immersion school she attends as a teen, where she slowly discovers the peace and exhilaration of wilderness survival. She becomes a skilled wildlife tracker, and shares heart-pounding solitary encounters with alpha wolves and other apex predators. She soon understands the urgency of the lessons she learns speaking the language of nature, and immerses herself in permaculture and Holistic Land Management so she can apply those lessons to our broken food culture and the regenerative farming practices that could repair it. When the trail of a mountain lion leads Doniga to a local rancher, she falls in love and moves to a cattle ranch on the California coast to start a family. But this is not the story of a wild woman become domesticated -- instead, Doniga brings the deep, unshakeable wisdom of the wild to her family's everyday life.

A love story for earth and back to the land. Joan Baez says "Dawn Again is filled with magic made real, down-to-earth and attainable to anyone."
The author taught herself to laugh through labour contractions. I'm not sure we all have the resources for that.
