Ann Wigmore is the lady who figured out wheatgrass--that you could drink it, and that it was healing. My mom handed me this book over Christmas, and I though hey, why not? I was expecting it to be a preachy weirdness, but it's actually a gorgeously written memoir about growing up in Eastern Europe with her healer grandmother and all of her animal friends who repeatedly saved her life. In fact, a really cool part of reading this for me was realizing my mom read me parts of it when I was a little ...more

An autobiography of the author's (founder of the Hippocrites Institute) life. Follows her life growing up in Eastern Europe where she was raised by her grandmother during the war.

A lovely boo

my bible. sure, a lot of the stuff in the book sounds like ann just made it up and you think to yourself: "that's bullshit and ridiculous, ann!" but perhaps it's ridiculous that we THINK it's ridiculous. society falsely makes us think that everything in this book is impossible. that's the sad part.
