Gingerly, I picked my way through the tall stalks flinching at the possibility of vipers. I was terrified of snakes, just terrified. Staring at the huge thorn bushes - great monsters baring tough green claws - I started to feel nauseous. My mind became a city at rush hour. It flashed anxious thoughts at me like traffic signals. Had it really come to this? Bumming in a Turkish field?
And then it happened - the meeting that would alter my destiny within this patch of Mediterranean scrubland. The encounter that would change me. Forever.
"Engaging and thought-provoking. The act of reading this seemed to affect me on a level beyond the words," Claire Raciborska, Growing Wild and Free.
"I consider myself a person who is connected to nature, somebody who respects the earth; this book has me walking through the world with all my senses opened." Emma Blas, author of No Less Wild than the Wind.
