Woodland Manitou: To Be on Earth is a collection of essays rooted in the rhythm of the natural world. Through the turn of the seasons, Heidi Barr illustrates how the cycles of the earth have informed her everyday life from community to vocation to the food that finds its way to the dinner table.  Through gardening, simple living, and prioritizing sustainability, Barr paints a picture of how remaining close to the earth provides a solid foundation even as the climate changes and the story of the world shifts.  Part stories, part wonderings, and part call to act, this collection of meditations invites reflection, encourages awareness, and inspires action.

Committed to giving voice to ways of being that are sustainable for people, communities and the planet, Heidi Barr is a writer, organic gardener, and wellness coach. She lives in Minnesota with her husband and daughter. Learn more about her work at heidibarr.com.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Written Woodland Manitou has got to be the most beautifully written books I have ever read. I have read it 3 times from front to back and have not been able to put it back on my book shelve, its actually sitting on my nightstand because I love randomly reading bits and pieces of it on the spur of the moment. Who would have thought that a book could make you feel so connected to the seasons , nature and this earth. The fact is I have fallen in love with this book and I know anyone that reads it is going to fall in love too.
