Recommends it for: anyone on a spiritual quest or any nature lover.
For a small book, the message is impactful! This lovely work is full of stimuli to absorb the beauty of nature and adopt it as part of our spiritual journey.

The accompanying photographs are stunning and great companions to the written message.

This is a delightful book of inspirational quotes, profound nature activities, and gorgeous photographs. Sort of an abridged version of the content in The Sky and Earth Touched Me, but in more of a page-a-day, or pretty-gift-book format. Great for anyone with a spiritual bent who likes spending time in nature!
