Dawn Again: Tracking the Wisdom of the Wild is a memoir of exploration and survival that will inspired you to better tend to the planet, even if it's simply tending the soil in your own back yard

By recounting her own wilderness immersion, animal tracking, and farming experiences, Dawn Again] deftly traces a line from the incredible complexity of nature's wisdom to humanity's vital role as ecologically responsible stewards of the land. --Allan Savory, author of Holistic Management, Third Edition: A Commonsense Revolution To Restore Our Environment

Dawn Again takes readers along Doniga's journey from unsettled teen to immersive nature school student to wildlife tracker to a cattlewoman on a mission to save the food system through regenerative agricultural practices that restore the soil and other non-human elements of the planet.

One of the few female voices in both wilderness immersion and ranching, Dawn Again is a nature memoir that shares a young woman's experience hitchhiking across the pacific northwest, waiting patiently to connect with a deer on its terms, and tracking in Alaska where she finally came face to face with white wolves and the rigor of wilderness survival.

When Doniga tracks mountain lions with Erik, a rancher, she finds herself falling in love with more than just nature. She settles down on a cattle ranch on the California coast to start a family, and has to learn how to apply the deep lessons of the wild to her everyday life.

Advocating for nature knowledge and ecological wisdom, Dawn Again dives into Doniga's real-life experiences as a woman, environmentalist, wilderness expert, woman rancher, mother, and producer in the food system.
