Host Lisa Tucker has author, naturalist, songwriter and musician Jeffrey Riordan Hinich on the show.

Jeff Hinich is a Henry David Thoreau enthusiast who has participated in the Thoreau Society Annual Gathering for many years. Jeff has written “Waking With Thoreau – Lungs of the Planet and Other Possibilities” where he explores the life and works of the author of “Walden or Life in the Woods” which was first published in 1854. Thoreau was much more than an author. He was a surveyor, pencil maker, abolitionist, naturalist, and transcendentalist who was an early proponent of environmentalism.

Jeff says, “My home for the past forty years has been a contemporary Walden, a Northern Ontario lake, touched by a railway on one shore, somewhat remote from the nearest community. As the morning light illuminates these Algoma highlands, I begin to write and work, gathering inspiration and metaphor from the moods of this landscape.”

Jeff lives in beautiful Searchmont, Ontario.
