The Embracing Woods
by Richard Lee Fulgham
The Embracing Woods concerns a young boy growing up in a small 1950's town snuggled up to Georgia's Pine Mountain, part of the Great Pine Forest. The book remembers the boys, beasts and bullies -- the escapes into the woods to find peace and wisdom. It's about animal behavior observed and the boy's realization that animal behavior and human behavior are intimately related.
The Embracing Woods by Richard Lee Fulgham is more than a return to simpler times; it is one man's journey of the soul wherein he seeks to pass on what he has learned to the present and future generations by means of philosophical insight inspired by a profound love of Nature. For it is Nature that both tempers and explains everything... at least in this author's eyes. From early encounters with creatures in the woods, to the realities of war and the perplexities of the modern world, Nature remains the one constant.
