This is a special volume filled with inspirational
stories and lyrical poems told in the tradition of Native American
storytelling and parable. Teresa tsimmu Martino creates a delightful
cast of characters who aid her search to find her place in the world.
Everything in Martinos universe is alive and vibrant, full
of love and mischief, and tricks and lessons. Through her personal
relationship to Nature, Martino brings to light our lost relationship
to the land. For her, the world is full of people---Rock People,
Grass People, Wind People---and the breath of these people is the
spirit that animates the world. Martino writes with great humor
and wonder at the daily adventure of living, and at the same time
continues to search for clarity and the balance of Earth and Spirit.

A TRUE STORY OF RETURNING HOME
Teresa Tsimmu Martino
Teresa tsimmu Martino lives on Vashon Island in the Pacific Northwest
where she writes, trains horses, and is the director of Wolftown,
a nonprofit organization founded by Martino that is dedicated to
wolf and horse rescue. Martino founded the nonprofit organization,
Wolftown, which is dedicated to horse and wolf rescue. The horses
are rescued from abusive homes and situations, abandoned by previous
owners, injured at the racetrack and ready to be sold overseas as
horsemeat, and sometimes from the wild. Wolftown also works with
young people, some facing their own personal crises, to teach them
compassion and empathy while caring for the animals. Young people
who volunteer at Wolftown witness, firsthand, how animals respond
to love and compassion, and they, too, learn to love and be kind.
Martino uses the balance and wisdom of the animals as well to teach
the kids, who are healing from their own emotional injuries.
