She Writes Press, 2023
In her search to find healing and meaning in midlife, Glenda Goodrich undertakes a series of wilderness quests into the backcountry to discover what the natural world has to teach her about life, death, happiness, spirituality, and forgiveness.
This book chronicles the sacred ceremonies that connected Glenda to the land, wove her into nature’s web, and transformed her from a woman who worked to please others into a woman who forged her own path. It is a brilliant collection of adventures—the touch of coyote fur, a snake’s kiss, a ceremonial blood offering—and a profound reflection on the healing and restorative power of nature.
