Annette McGivney is a journalist and the author of the book Pure Land.
When Annette says that she has something in common with a murderer, she’s right. And she also has something in common with a tourist from Japan, as well as the American landscape. Annette doesn’t hold anything back – at her core, she’s a journalist. She investigates her own story like she investigates that of all the subjects in the book. Each person came alive through her diligent research, resulting in a tribute to a curious woman named Tomomi, sympathy for the man who killed her, and a reunion with Annette’s childhood self.
Annette’s is a story of trauma, healing, and connection. While there’s darkness, there’s a lot of light. Annette founded a nonprofit called Healing Lands Project to help bring children out into nature who have experienced trauma. When you buy the book, a portion of the proceeds go to the nonprofit, or you can donate on the website.
