Publisher’s notebook: Ex-teacher mixes nature with grace

Half Dome mistThe St. Helena Star is the weekly newspaper for, well, you guessed it – St. Helena, California.  I was extremely honored when Doug Ernst, the Publisher/Editor, decided not only to read Biodesign Out For A Walk, but to publish a review.  And did I mention I was nervous that he was going to publish a review?  But it turns out I had nothing to fear.  Doug wrote a beautiful review that tells me he “got it.”

He “got” what the Biodesign class was about, and more importantly, he “got” that the book is less about me and more about the 700+ teenagers who had the courage to embark on a physical, mental and spiritual journey while studying advanced biology in high school.  If you want to see for yourself, follow this link to read Doug’s review.  Thanks, Doug!
