‘I started The Journal of Bison Jack at a time in my life when I felt I had lost my way a little and I hoped that by trying to connect the dots of my life through words I may be able to retrace my steps—and, as time passed, this daily ritual helped me reconnect with myself and instill me with a new and unexpected sense of purpose.’

The Dirt and the Shovel and the Light Bursting Through the Trees is a selection of works gathered from 10 years of the journal.
