About the Author
Bev Doolittle was born and raised in California. She graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. She is a fine-art phenomenon in the world of limited-edition prints, where her editions and their sell-out rate are unsurpassed in the industry. She and her publisher, Greenwich Workshop Press, have contributed over a million dollars in proceeds from sales of her prints to the National Wildlife Federation, the National Museum of the American Indian, the National Arbor Day Foundation, and, most recently, the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Bev Doolittle's books include The Forest Has Eyes, The Earth Is My Mother, and The Art of Bev Doolittle.
Elise Maclay has collaborated on five books with Bev Doolittle, including The Forest Has Eyes and The Earth Is My Mother. Her poetry has appeared in Nature magazine, and she is the author of Approaching Autumn and Green Winter, two popular books of prose poems. Elise lives near the shore in Connecticut.

I cannot praise this book enough as it reflects all my core beliefs--that girls can be strong, brave, and caring individuals, that traditional cultures have much to teach us, that we are all part of the great circle of life, and that we are made from stardust and the earth is our mother.
As a childhood fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder's stories, Thorton Burgess' "Old Mother West Wind" tales, and fan of American Indian traditions and lore as well as a lover of the great outdoors, I was pleased to discover a book I could hand to my granddaughters with these words, "You want to know what life is about? read this book."
Another "earth" book I love for the illustrations is:
Dear Children of the Earth.
I also love a novel about how hope can work miracles, that is an all-time FAVORITE of mine:
The Secret Garden
to tear it out and frame it. If I did that, it would hurt the book. That isn't going to happen.
