Tracy J Thomas has written a thought provoking book, " Zen in the Garden" that combines human life with the rest of nature. It is a piece that needs to be read and experienced. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a way to make sense of how they work with nature.

Thomas thinks much the way I have all my life. I hope others will enjoy this book as much as I do.

I do not know the author. I won this book through Goodreads first reads give away.
