Originally published in 1883, The Story of My Heart explores the existence of a "soul-life" as British nature writer Richard Jefferies experienced while wandering in England. With an introduction by Terry and essays by Brooke alongside Jefferies' original work, these two beloved writers and environmentalists contemplate dilemmas of modernity, the intrinsic need for wildness, and what it means to be human in the 21st century.
