Gnarled Tree: PTSD and the Ancient Wisdom of Wilderness chronicles the story of William Katzhaus, from the crime committed against him at age six, through boyhood, and to maturity battling Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Like a gnarled tree in the wilderness, Katzhaus endures a lifetime of struggle, but still lives on.
Throughout this journey, Katzhaus is driven to understand why it all happened, not just to him, but to all the millions of victims throughout history. Ultimately, Gnarled Tree is about finding solace, courage, meaning, and purpose in wild places--deserts, mountains, forests--but also in the wild hearts of our ancient ancestors.
By understanding the ancient wisdom of wilderness and embracing the wildness within ourselves, we can find the courage to heal ourselves and the culture around us.
