If you are interested in discovering or expanding your relationship with Mother Earth and the world around you, you would be wise to read this book. Mr. Endredy has clearly assimilated the Toltec teachings he received regarding Earth Walks and has presented the information in a clear, concise and well presented manner.
The book is participatory in nature. While you will certainly gain some important abstract knowledge by reading alone, the key to the book is practicing the Earth Walks described within. While the knowledge built within the walks is presented sequentially, you do not need to practice in a similar manner, but, rather, can adapt the practice of the Walks to fit your individual circumstances. As our circumstances change over time, likely will your preference for different Walks. You will be able to get what you need from this book.
Mr. Endredy and Mr. Sanchez are commended for sharing wisdom that can make a difference in each of our lives, if we choose to do so. Whether you perform the Walks individually or as part of a group, whether in wild, rural, suburban, or even urban areas, you will ultimately be better for doing so.
This book is a practical, hands on manual that can only benefit your relationship with yourself, other people, and all of the world around you.

Author James Endredy literally walks his talk in this self-help back-to-nature primer. There's plenty of variety to choose from in the over three dozen "walks" he describes for all levels of ability and intent. Follow his instructions and discover the possibilities of re-connecting with an inner and outer presence that promotes awareness, compassion, mental acumen, health and healing.
Endredy is a great storyteller. He skillfully weaves stories of his deeply spiritual experiences with "...Earth honoring energy and intuition...". His journey has brought him into relationship with the world's core indigenous communities but not before he began to discover his own authentic Self. Some of these personal experiences are unique to him but many of them will seem familiar to readers. In addition, the book has strong mentoring qualities for men relating to any of the rites of passage stages: graduation, mid-life, retirement, those "0" birthdays, etc.
I'm delighted to have this resource for my continuing education creativity sessions and university level movement classes. On a personal level, I am just beginning to uncover its value to my own personal growth and relationship to Mother Earth and its inhabitants.
