The Faithful Gardener [Audio]

What in life is unconquerable; what survives? On The Faithful Gardener, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Est's mines the rich storytelling tradition of her own family to unearth a series of lyrical stories that illustrate how faith is the one immortal force in our lives. Raised by a family of refugee immigrants who revered stories as healing instruments, Dr. Est's tells these ageless tales first told" ... to nourish, repair, and strengthen - whatever is most needed and wanted." Like Matriochka dolls, The Faithful Gardener stories nest inside one another. What begins as a simple tale from the lips of a child, becomes the greater saga of Uncle Zov?r, a quiet refugee from the Nazi slave camps, and his refusal to let bitterness darken his devotion to the earth. The final story, told in the form of a vivid old country tale about "that which can never die," holds an unforgettable lesson about sacrifice and spiritual regeneration. The Faithful Gardener captures the spirit of a long-ago time, while deeply expressing our common desire to know that grappling with sudden and unexpected twists of fate and challenging transitions - however painful - is never in vain.
