I’ve had the honor and pleasure of witnessing Twelve Days of Peace by Jimmy Lange unfold over the last few years, and even though I’m familiar with the content, each time I open a page of the book, I’m immediately drawn into nature and experience a sense of peace–and awe. Jimmy’s artwork and photography cast a spell over me. Through his stories, I walk along side him, sharing in his adventures and remembering my own.


Twelve Days of Peace sits prominently on my bookshelf. I reach for it often, especially when daily life keeps me from venturing into the mountains. Jimmy’s work brings the healing powers of nature into our homes–and offices–at a time when we need it most. I highly recommend this book finds a place in your heart, in your home, and in your world.

Jimmy says,

“My wish with Twelve Days of Peace is to, perhaps at least in some small way, help people slow down a little…Nature is a great way to do that, in no small part due to the fact that natural cycles often progress slowly, either seasonally or over millennia. It can help us achieve a fresh perspective on the true meaning of time…and how we might choose to spend ours.
