Walk Walkabout to Wisdom
As climate change irrevocably impacts our lives, as does the increasing rate of species extinction, humanity is at a critical juncture in its evolution. Will we change our ways to live in harmony with the planet, and ourselves, or will we continue along the current destructive path to the detriment of all living things? Based on our increasing economic, technological, and environmental problems today, do we need to embrace a different life philosophy if we are to evolve as a species - one that is based on a love for Nature, and all life, not just ourselves?
Walkabout to Wisdom, a multi-award winning adventure story from the Australian Outback, is an insightful and articulate guide to a philosophy whose essence is the importance of a stronger connection with the natural world. With reviews from leading Australian authors and environmentalists, and a foreword from one of Australia's most respected songwriters, Lachlan's inspiring and evocative story reminds us, and encourages us, to remember how an intimate connection with Nature is at the very core of our being. And that a healthy connection with the natural world is critical to the evolution of our species and society - today, tomorrow, and in the future.

Walkabout to Wisdom is an adventurous
work of non-fiction and travel writing penned by author Lachlan Hughson, which
in its own words strives to explain the 'Awakening to Nature's Teaching in the
Australian Outback'. In a chaotic and often selfish world, Hughson describes
the soul-searching journey of the traditional Australian walkabout method but
also uses this platform to illuminate the importance of listening to Nature in
this age of climate change and planetary destruction by human hands. As a city
resident at the time of the September 11 attacks in New York City, Hughson's
incredible two-year exploration of the Outback has much to teach and inspire
After living in New York City for seven
years, author Lachlan Hughson returns to Australia with the desire to awaken
his own awareness of Nature and its teachings. What results is a well written
and sensitively designed work that educates, inspires, but also sends an
important warning about ignoring and abusing the natural world for our own
benefits. There is both realistic heart and academic wisdom in the writing,
with almost spiritual insights that readers can connect with intimately to
understand the many messages Nature's voice can teach. Overall, Walkabout to
Wisdom is a very well-presented and well-written work, one which all followers
of the concrete rat race should stop and read. K.C. Finn - Readers' Favorite
