About the Author
Dr Sharon Blackie is an award-winning writer of fiction and nonfiction, a psychologist who has specialised both in neuroscience and narrative, and a mythologist with a specialisation in Celtic Studies. Her unique approach to working with myth, fairy tales and folklore highlights the insights these traditions can offer us into authentic and meaningful ways of being which are founded on a deep sense of belonging to place, a rootedness in the land we inhabit.

"I love this book. Truly, it's mind-blowing in the most profound and exhilarating sense. This is an anthem for all we could be, an essential book for this, the most critical of recent times. I sincerely hope every woman who can read is given one, and has the time and the space to read it." -- Manda Scott, author of Boudica and Into the Fire

"Women have long been told to 'know our place'. This powerful and inspiring exploration of the female relationship with landscape turns the diktat around, showing us what may be gained from doing just that." -- Melissa Harrison, author of Clay and At Hawthorn Time

"Blackie does an admirable job of describing a beautiful, rich, intoxicating, messy, terrifying and ultimately illuminating pathway into the heart of the land and of our own souls. Recommended." -- Sharon Paice Macleod, SageWoman

"A beautiful, intelligent and unusual book... I'm hoping this book will become the anthem of our generation." -- Kate Forsyth, author of Bitter Greens, The Wild Girl and The Beast's Garden

"It was one of those rare times when I felt as if by some means of synchronicity, the right book reached me at exactly the right moment." -- Dreaming in Stitches

"This book has the power to change lives, I truly believe that... A real game changer." -- The Way of the Buzzard

"It is heartening to read a progressive view of the women's movement and one that links with care for the Earth and all living beings. This book is very well recommended." -- GreenSpirit magazine
