New Deal: FINDING MARLEY by Brad Orsted

Updated: Mar 4, 2022

Brad Orsted's FINDING MARLEY has sold to Michael Homler at St. Martin's Press.

Orsted's memoir is an account of the wildlife photographer and filmmaker's ten-year odyssey of grief and redemption in the Yellowstone wilderness as he mourns the death of his daughter Marley. While guiding hikers, photographing wild animals, and saving grizzlies, Orsted ultimately finds the wild within the human heart, and undertakes a journey to forgiveness, sobriety, love and life, to memory and ultimately—to Marley.

"Brad Orsted's decade-long spiritual sojourn read to me and TRF Executive Editor Diane Terrana like a modern-day Siddhartha,” said The Rights Factory CEO Sam Hiyate. “His story arc of redemption through wilderness would be perfect on a show like Yellowstone. In fact, Taylor Sheridan -- if they met him and heard his story, Brad himself might compete with Rip for the Dutton's love. Option this book, dude!"

Watch Brad Orsted's film, THE BEAST OF OUR TIME, narrated by Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges and winner of “Best Environmental Film” from the DOC LA Awards.
