Nature's Child is a collection of short stories, ballads and poems for the Wild Spirit in all of us. Several of the stories are set in North America, where the woods are old and wild creatures roam. Characters are called upon to overcome bears, snakes, mystical creatures and most of all, their own fear. Also included are three ballads set in Southern New Zealand, during a time of gold mining and greed. Where the 'Great Southern Man' proved himself through action, not words. Will they prevail to conquer what lies before them? Will they find their own true connection to Mother Nature? With adventure, strong eclogical messages and plenty of humour, Nature's Child is an enjoyable addition to any bookshelf, for the younger reader, or for the young at heart. Remember, adventure can sometimes be just outside your door!
