Doniga Markegard, co-owner and operator of Markegard Family Grass-Fed farm, shares her phenomenal memoir, Dawn Again: Tracking the Wisdom of the Wild.
From the Pacific Northwest forests to the rugged coastal shores of California, Dawn Again: Tracking the Wisdom of the Wild is a remarkable memoir of exploration and survival. As a young girl, Doniga Markegard was thrown from her horse and knocked unconscious. She remembers an out of body experience that revealed to her the great mystery at the heart of life. In Dawn Again she writes of a young woman's immersion in nature in search of herself and her passions. Her search takes her hitchhiking across the West and to Alaska where she discovers and falls deeply in love with tracking wolves and the rigors of surviving in the wilderness. At a wilderness immersion school, medicine people and wildlife trackers train her in indigenous ways. Doniga seeks a vision and discovers her purpose, only to find herself on a cattle ranch falling in love and starting a family, while finding a new way to use all she has learned about the wilderness and what it has to teach us.
