Fifteen Hundred Miles on Foot Looking at the Nature of Finland
“Notes for the Aurora Society” is the story of a 1500-mile walk through Finland. In the spring of 2003, I left from the southernmost point of Finland and criss-crossed the Finnish countryside interviewing Finns about their relationship to nature and exploring the land and the history that made modern Finland. Five months later I found myself on the on the shores of the Arctic Ocean. This work of travel literature is an attempt to blending a naturalist’s ecosystem knowledge with an anthropologist’s ability to elicit unique insight into the process of culture, this work of travel literature is the first book to look at the Finnish people through their connection to the natural world.
