Going Native

Home

"We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills and the winding streams with tangled growth as 'wild'. Only to the white man was nature a 'wilderness', and only to him was the land 'infested' with 'wild' animals and 'savage' people. To us it was tame. Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery."

Praise for Weasel Tracks:

Jeremy recieved so much from the program last year that I cannot thank you enough. William had such a good time it was the best transition out of public school that I could wish for. He tells anyone who listen all about his adventures in the woods.


Thanks and Peace,
Wendy
