Yearning for the Land
A Search for Homeland in Scotland and America
Author John Warfield Simpson, professor of Landscape Architecture and Natural Resources at Ohio State University, searches for a sense of belonging as he travels in John Muir's footsteps through Wisconsin and explores East Lothian, where he lived with his family for nine months. John Simpson's stay in Cockburnspath also led to the amazing discovery of his own family connections with the area.
This beautifully written account, which draws from his interviews with local residents, concludes that our roots not only matter, but that they are linked in our history, landscape and community.
