Teaching Places by Audrey J. Whitson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A tale about a woman's spiritual search, how that search calls her to the land, and how the land teaches. The telling spirals, exploring loss of faith, loss of voice, and the finding of a different, broader faith and a deeper, stronger voice. Her journey takes her to many special wilderness areas across Alberta to the Canadian Shield, to mountains, prairies, boreal forest, and parkland. In the telling of her journey, she interweaves migration, evolution, family, landscape, noise, silence, and song. Remarkable for the breadth of its treatment of the spiritual journey, combining prose and poetry, the book delves in old traditions (Aboriginal, European, mystical Christian) and new.
