Call Number: DU627.83.W54 A3 2015 (Hawaii Pacific Collection)
An eloquent and moving memoir of cultural awakening. The author found pu'uhonua -- sanctuary -- in the endangered Hawaiian rainforest ecosystem. In this book she shares the feeling of being in a landscape alive with ancestral voices that sing through the mist and fire, birds and insects, plants and ferns. Discovering her own wholeness in these sacred uplands, Wight inspires us to find our own healing places. Her rhythmic prose along with paintings and photos by local artists, conveys the depth and magic of the Hawaiian rainforest and brings the ancestral songs to life.
