"A book to treasure, to savor, to keep ... - full of tales that are mesmerizing and heartening (Judith Freeman)." "These voices remind, rejoice, bewail, berate - with love, joy, compassion, energy, nerve and outrage - and we'd better pay attention (Janet Kauffman)." From the front and back covers. ( )
  strawberrycreekmtg | Jan 26, 2014 |
This is an absolutely beautiful collection of poems, prose, anecdotes, and other stories... I loved each piece. My only complaint is the inclusion of certain authors at the exclusion of others, and the occasionally too-long contributing author write-ups. All in all though, it is an extremely moving read. ( )

I used this as a reference source, and bought or borrowed many of the works excerpted. ( )

Epigraph
This earth is my sister;
I love her daily grace, her silent daring, and how
loved I am //
how we admire this strength in each other,
all that we have lost, all that we have suffered, all that
we know: //
we are stunned by this beauty,
and I do not forget: what she is to me, what I am
to her. //
--- Susan Griffin, "Woman and Nature: The Roaring Inside Her"
Dedication
To Gaia - fertile mother, wise sister.
