Stop a moment to wonder about the world around you - the warmth of the sun, the shade of the trees, the echoing cadence of animal calls. What do these mean to you? The seven stories in this collection come from cultures near and far, each one unique in its relationship with the natural world.
In this beautiful book of folk tales and craft projects, you will learn about the ways that different cultures around the world set out to live in harmony with the rhythms and patterns of nature. You will also learn to create a song-line painting, cook anything-goes soup, make a cornhusk doll, grow your own tomatoes, make a pinecone birdfeeder, build a willow den and design a mini water garden.
