Back to Nature

Ruffner Book Promo

Back to Nature by Mark Kelly is the “Ruffner book” whispered about for years, and now available for purchase!

In vivid prose, Kelly relates the history of Ruffner Mountain—it’s missteps and setbacks—a story that, in many ways, mirrors the story of Birmingham. Giving this incredible narrative life are the photos of Bob Farley and together they beautifully illustrate Ruffner Mountain Nature Coalition’s 40 years of existence and the mountain’s journey back to nature.

To order Back to Nature, visit our store’s website , or visit Alabama Booksmith and Ruffner Mountain on specific dates in September to get a signed copy - details of which can be found on our events calendar for September.
