The Wisdom of Wild Places

The magnificent Southwest Desert is endlessly fascinating to Toni the quilter and her husband. They love the light and shadow, colors and contrasts—and of course, they enjoy being surrounded by wildlife. One day, Toni’s husband finds orphaned quail eggs and brings them home. Toni knows how to make inspiring quilts, but how can her creativity help these wild creatures? She delves deep into ancestral wisdom and the quail begin to thrive. Will her quail chicks ever meet their wild family? This tender, beautifully illustrated story illuminates how humanity is linked with wild nature and offers a gentle lesson about stewardship.
