For the acclaimed writer and environmental activist Rick Bass, there are no hard lines between life, art and the natural world.

Bass’s latest book is a collection of essays spanning his storied career — from his early days as a competitive weightlifter, to his experiences as a hunter and outdoorsman, to his recent efforts to protect the ancient forests of Montana. What ties it all together is beauty. Bass says beauty is the secret sauce for putting one step in front of the next each day. He joins us to explore the deep connections between personal passion, conflict and the search for meaning in an ever-changing world.
