"Reynolds' respect for both the indigenous peoples and the land itself is evident as she shares her discovery of how a deep connection with the natural world strengthens the primal nature of the mother-child bond. . . . This little book is a treasure. A delight to look at, a pleasure to readand to share with your children."
"The photographs are remarkable for their intimacy and beauty, but what is important about her books is Jan Reynolds's sincere sense of the majesty of the world's people. By sharing an empathetic and unsentimental glimpse of them, she gives us all a great gift."
"This is a beautiful book in every respect, and if it may strike some in our 'civilized' society as other worldly, it nevertheless offers a lucid and informed vision of very basic realities. Most mothers will understand what it says, and so will concerned fathers. Maybe it would help if this book could be read and pondered by all those bureaucrats and politicians who keep trying to tell us what they think 'family values are all about.'"
