    For lovers of nature and explorers of self

    If you have ever wanted to retreat from the world, spend some time by yourself, get to know yourself better, this book is for you. The beautiful illustrations make possible a journey into nature that lack of time or money may not afford you. The introspection and honesty of the author facilitate honesty with yourself, asking questions and finding answers you might not have known were there.
