About the Book

Tales of the Soil is a collection of spiritual and inspirational allegories that challenge the concept of existence. The book invites each reader to become The Meadow and every creature that calls it home. Venture through time as a dandelion. Experience love, compassion, aging, and learning through the eyes of the butterfly. Explore growth, understanding, and change, as would a droplet of dew.


"I viewed, through the magical eyes of this author, a wondrous tale of what is all about us and yet unseen. The writing is powerful, evoking images that brought tears as I read, echoing truths that resonated deeply. The ordinary so transformed, that I could neither read it aloud without my voice breaking, nor read it through dry eyes. This is a spiritual journey, in the story style of the ancient medicine men of native cultures, which touches the Great Spirit in us all. Discover the world above, below and within this special Meadow as the stories are painted through your mind’s eye upon the palette of your imagination.  I don''t know how she does this, but I''m grateful that she does.”
