It's a lovely book that makes earth the centre of our lives and explores all things natural, the seasons, the cycles, the trees, the folklore, the history and culture and you wonder where you have been living as you read all that. this is the same earth we live in and treat so lightly, take it for granted. The way she describes the beauty of each tree, shrub, how the earth gives and cares, you want to go and work with the earth right then.
The author talks about how we are the change, the gifts of the earth, the spirit of the land and how we can begin this change. There are detailed insights into the earth's cycles. Then she delves deep into these cycles - Samhain, Winter Solstice, Imbolic, Spring Equinox, Beltain, Summer Solstice, Lammas, Autumn Equinox - some of which we haven't heard of before. Then she talks about trees - Silver Birch, Hazel, Holly, Apple. Then about water. She talks of meditations, about practices, about prayers. About making walking sticks!
