For years, the trail of his life led through dense marshes, high mountain forests and steamy jungles. Then it stopped with just one word. Cancer. For the next seven years, Pat Herzog was pursued by chronic leukemia until undergoing life-threatening experimental treatment. Thereafter, he was relentlessly bushwhacked by fatigue and brain fog, skirting the edges of depression. Only by regaining his passion for nature was he finally able to overcome his fear of living. More than an authentic tale of illness, From the Mist – A Life Restored By Nature is a story of hardiness, faith and renewal. And it is tangible proof of the undeniable healing powers of nature.

“A captivating and compelling story.”

— Dr. Linda E. Carlson, Ph.D., C.Psych. University of Calgary

“Wonderful… an exceptional avenue to the use of images of nature as a healing force.”

— Robert Bateman

“The broader lesson from Pat’s long journey may be that the natural world can help all of us cope better with the unwelcome episodes of life.”

— Michael G. Anderson, PhD. Emeritus Scientist, Ducks Unlimited Canada
