    My copy of The Story of My Heart ends at page 233, so I am missing the end of Scott Slovic’s essay. Please email to me the last pages.
    Thanks, Gene

    friends at torrey house,
    one of our customers has been on the board of the john burroughs award for nature writing, and recently asked for a copy of the story of my heart (after reading about it on our blog) we would like to suggest that you nominate it for the award, given once a year, for nature writing – go to their website – john burroughs society nature writing award or something like that –
