Found it! The book is called Forest Bathing: How Trees Can Help You Find Health and Happiness. Author: Dr. Quing Li.

It's in the Sunday NY Times book review, Dec 2, 2018. I bet you can find it on amazon.com too!

That's *great* to hear, Jason! I've injured my back and Central Park is the closest I can get to any forest, so this solution is wonderful!!!

I don't know too much about fibromyalgia, so I'm just throwing this out there. But I know there are hanging tents that you can get that feel like laying in a hammock, which might be a lot more comfortable than sleeping on the ground. Would something like that work for your husband?
