Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"Holy Nature is exactly a 'healing force', a revitalized and intelligent movement that looks backwards for its roots while looking forward toward its independence. And who would not wish to share in that? What could be better than to bask benea th the warm summer sun among friends and neighbors, share a family picnic and watch children at play, the long somber night far behind and cool, refreshing waves of a crystal clear lake lapping at one's feet? We should all be so lucky." ---Pennfield Jensen, from the "Introduction."
