"Michelle Adam has written a beautiful story that will take you into magical and mystical realms, and remind you, once again, of your connection with the earth. Child of Duende is a rich and inspiring story filled with love." -Sandra Ingerman, award-winning author of ten books, including Walking in Light: The Everyday Empowerment of Shamanic Life "Child of Duende takes us on a voyage where the earth speaks about our immense power and responsibility as humans to be agents of change for a better world. We discover, through Michelle Adam's magical storytelling, who we are capable of being, and must be, at this unsustainable time in history, if we are to come home to the heaven on earth that our indigenous ancestors have known this place to be." -John Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and other books, including Shapeshifting, The World Is As You Dream It, Psychonavigation, and Spirit of the Shuar "Michelle Adam is masterful writer. Artfully weaving together Spanish culture and Gypsy mysticism, Child of Duende is a provocative tale that will bring you home to yourself-and to what is truly possible for our relationship with nature, and all of life, on our collective journey here on Earth." -Llyn Roberts, MA, award-winning author of Shapeshifting into Higher Consciousness, and co-author with Sandra Ingerman of Speaking with Nature "Our Mother Earth has dreamed into life all that grows, flies, swims, or crawls upon Her. For much of our brief human history, we knew how to repay the gift and replenish her fruitfulness. Child of Duende is a tale of one woman's magical odyssey to the edge where human spirits and the soul of nature dance. Through a page-turning whorl of half-remembered promises, buried emotions, and visionary dreams, Michelle Adam takes us on our own shamanic journey to discover the sweet promise of renewal." -Evelyn C. Rysdyk, author of Spirit Walking: A Course in Shamanic Power and A Spirit Walker's Guide to Shamanic Tools
