Synopsis: Is it true, as they say, the virtues of wisdom, bravery, honor, loyalty, compassion and purity enshrined in the Japanese soul have become lost in the rush of modern civilization? Has the power divine, the spirit of infinite light, love, tears and remembrance, and the courage to die for a noble cause become the stuff old movies in Japan are made of? After more than forty years in Japan I once thought so. But through a revelation of penetrating spiritual observations about the legacy of gods and men enshrined in the Japanese soul the late head priest of tatsuta taisha, the Dragon Shrine, showed me I was wrong.Where the Trees Grow Thick is a search for a dying fortress called the Yamato spirit The unseen is never easy to find, but searching for it-as I discovered-is like coming to know one's True Self.

About the Author: Howard Wilson is a graduate of Northwestern University, where he received a degree in writing and history. A lifelong student of ancient religious beliefs, he has explored the subject in Japan and Asia for over forty years at temples and shrines and during his studies at Otani University. While writing and lecturing on the subject, he became a worshiper at tatsuta taisha, the Dragon Shrine, which led to Where the Trees Grow Thick. The author has a third-grade black belt in Kodokan judo and lives in Yamato with his Japanese wife who is an artist. He has two sons.
