From the Publisher:

Resonant and poetic in its simplicity, this is the story of a young girl who uses the hidden forms and patterns of the natural world to transform herself as well as her enemies. The Woman Who Lives in the Earth invites us to understand the world in a different way, to overcome fear and hatred and to become re-enchanted by wonder and beauty. This modern classic delivers a powerful message of hope to all who fall under its spell.

"Wolfe writes with enough grace that you never feel preached at but you do feel convinced." -- USA Today
"A kind of mutant message down under the last frontier." -- Esquire
"The Woman Who Lives in the Earth is finding a home in the hearts and minds of those who have read it." -- The Salt Lake Tribune
"The Woman Who Lives in the Earth will become a classic." -- Bloomsbury Review
"Beautiful and profound, both fantastical and utterly real. Swain Wolfe has given us a truly useful story, a moral fable for these and all times." -- William Kittredge

From the Back Cover:

"Wolfe's disarmingly simple novel, part Aesopian fable, part environmentalist parable, clearly aspires to the timeless, ageless stature of The Little Prince."
--Publishers Weekly

"Prose like night air..."
--Kirkus Reviews

"The Woman Who Lives in the Earth is turning into 'the little book that lives in the heart' thanks to the persistent power of word-of-mouth."
--Rocky Mountain News

"A remarkable book, a fable of enchantment, written with grace and elegance, a memorable story of land and love."
--Kinesis

"Beautiful and profound, both fantastical and utterly real. Swain Wolfe has given us a truly useful story, a moral fable for these and all times."
--William Kittredge

"Enchantingly told and beautifully realized... his prose resonating with a deft and heartfelt honesty that owes as much to poetry as to the straightforward storytelling style of, say, a Hemingway."
--Fantasy and Science Fiction
