'Mary Jane Wild' with Brooke Williams on Monday's Access Utah
Brooke Williams walked twice into Southern Utah’s Mary Jane Wilderness: at the beginning of the Trump presidency, and four-years later at its end. In Mary Jane Wild, Brooke Williams documents his experience in this magical place, his sense of what happened during the Trump presidency, why and its possible long-term effects. It is also his story of how walking in the wilderness heals, helps him identify, then adapt to changing modern conditions and understand the role wildness continues to play in the evolution of life.
Brooke Williams has spent the last thirty years advocating for wilderness. He is the author of four books, including Open Midnight, Halflives: Reconciling Work and Wildness and The Story of My Heart, by Richard Jeffries, as rediscovered by Brooke Williams and Terry Tempest Williams. His journalistic pieces have appeared in Outside, Huffington Post, Orion and Saltfront. He and his wife, Terry Tempest Williams, divide their time between Utah and Wyoming.
