Weaving personal experience of the land with an exposition of the importance of the natural world and our place within it, the author uses tribal lore, mythic stories and Jungian insights, to illustrate how it is possible to lose connections with the earth's natural cycles. Andrews calls for a new kind of education that would result in people living in harmony with the world and feeling a sense of spiritual wholeness.

From the Author:

This book is, in part, my story and the story of a culture in need of a homecoming and a way of returning to the deep, abiding comforts of the earth.  Nature is not only accessible in wild and remote places, it is a force that is vividly present in our imagination and our dreams.   Through mythology, literature and film, I explore our different attitudes toward nature, how men and women relate to their bodies and the body of the earth, and ways in which my generation has begun to recreate a sense of place and fashion new rituals honoring our connection to the land. 

From the Back Cover:

"A powerful and poignant work about our need for a sense of place.  Valerie Andrews knows the costs of our uprootedness and how this also takes its roll upon our bodies.  Her book will help others find a home in the body of the world."Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD, author of Like a Tree, Close to the Bone, and Goddesses in Everywoman"This book speaks about the kind of soul work we must do if we wish to stop harming the environment. These essays can help us move into a new ecological age."  Thomas Berry, author of Dream of the Earth"Mingled with the voice of Valerie Andrews, you can hear the Earth speaking.  you hear its wounded cry. You hear it singing to us through our dreams.  This book will tell you how to recover the lost promise of your youth and rekindle your passion for this earth." Sam Keen, author Fire in the Belly, A Passionate Life and To a Dancing God. "An excellent book and a courageous one."  Marion Woodman, author of Conscious Femininity and Addiction to Perfection
