These women share an intensity that comes from contact with nature. We read how their exchange with the non-human blossoms through artistic and spiritual practices. As associate editor of The River Reporter and as facilitator/founder of The Upper Delaware Writers Collective, Greene fosters awareness in individuals who are activists in their ecosystem. Here, we meet some of these women. She introduces us to a nine-year-old walking a streambed and an eighty year old living alone in the woods. We meet a wildlife rehabilitator, a shorthorn shepherd, a Sufi master, a Yoruba priestess, a dancer, a photographer, an activist, a gardener, a naturalist and a mountaineer. Their words are echoed in poems that examine the books four sections: Earths Daughters, Crossing Paths, Body Knowledge and Answering the Call. The book is 272 pages and features 12 interviews and 24 poems.
