About the Author
Robin Easton walked away from society at the age of twenty-five. She left the United States and went to live with her husband in the remote tropical Daintree Rainforest of Queensland, Australia. One of Robin's most remarkable rainforest experiences was the gift of music. During her last year in the rainforests of Australia she began to dream beautiful music. When she returned to the United States she sat at a piano and played as if she'd played for ten years. Unable to read music, Robin has performed and recorded on both the east and west coasts. She's done production work with musician Les Brown, Jr., and produced and published her own piano solo album, all from her original dream music.
Robin's story has been told on an award-winning NBC News affiliate piece, Paul Harvey News, CNN, KBLA Radio, KSFR, and others. She's appeared in magazines and newspapers throughout the U.S. and Canada. In 2002 Robin helped found the Daintree Rainforest Land Trust (DRLT) to help save the vital rainforests. She writes and blogs at www.nakedineden.com.

"Naked in Eden" is an unforgettable adventure tale, mesmerizing in its bold and revealing honesty. Easton holds nothing back as she relates how she reclaimed herself in a most unusual way. Twenty-five years old, mildly autistic, and alone with her new husband in a foreign country half-way around the world from her home and all that was familiar, she found the greatest treasure in life among glistening moments of pure beauty.
Exciting, impactful, and awe-inspiring, this nail-biting account of a period in her life is filled with breathtaking scenery, danger, humor, passion and compassion, wisdom, and the most profoundly beautiful love. It's an unusual adventure story, a journey of self-discovery, and filled with universal wisdom.
Easton's delightful story is powerful and moving, and it's filled with astounding moments of courage, strength, honesty, vision, and woven throughout her tale are shining nuggets of cautions, lessons, and wisdoms for the world. If readers look beyond the surface, they will find universal messages they can apply for themselves, life lessons for growth and awareness about what it means to live a life that's in absolute harmony with everything and everyone: all our world's living beings.
This hard-to-put-down book is an easy read, with dialog and descriptions that flow as smoothly as an undisturbed river. My recommendation, however, is to read it as slowly as you're able, just so you don't miss any hidden nuggets of juicy revelations about life. I couldn't do that, though. I just finished it, and will turn right around and read it again, for the deeper messages, to catch all the subtleties I know I didn't allow to register the first time, gleaning more insights from this most unusual and uplifting love story about life and the world we live in.
I can't recommend this book enough, and I eagerly await Easton's next tale!
A final word--or two:
My admiration for this woman is unbounded. I teasingly remarked to a friend that we should clone Easton, and he said, "Cloning her is a great idea. It could transform life as we know it overnight." I totally agree! The world needs more who approach life and live it as she does: fearlessly and wholeheartedly, and eagerly seeking the best within and sharing it widely.
Easton is a worthy role model for all of us.
Robin's soulful and healing journey brings us to an awareness of our own innate capacity for connection and healing, our own longing for the wild in us.
Robin chose to face life full force in a soul-inspired, gentle manner, all the while courageously confronting every fear we humans commonly sweep under the carpet, hoping they will magically disappear. She faced dangers in the wild that most of us never confront - both in nature and in her inner world.
My heart hung on every word and laughed and cried over and over. Her writing style is both outrageously hilarious and poignantly heart wrenching. Her compassion and love is food for the soul. I didn't want it to end.
Naked In Eden inspires, it beckons us to go to our core, to come home to our true selves. We come to understand the love and wisdom in nature and how nature personally loves us, the earth, the animals, the trees, the water, the rocks all LOVE us. Can we rise to the calling and love them in return?
Naked In Eden is a masterpiece of indescribable beauty!
She began her journey into the Daintree Rainforest in Australia as an ordinary being and emerged far more powerful than even she ever imagined. The forest had re-energised her.
Robin was able to tap into the consciousness of the forest and it's creatures and fortunately for us, she also has the gift to relate an awe inspiring story.
After reading "Naked in Eden" I was definitely transformed too. I applaud you for your courage Robin, as your book gave me a new level of understanding and awakened my spirit.
This book isn't only a fascinating adventure, it's also a visualization and a narration of how deeply we can connect to and communicate with the natural world around us, and what true love is about.
This book was enlightening as well as inspiring in a way that i imagine would be different for every reader of Robins account of finding her ancient self and connecting to the life forms that surrouded her. I would suggest this book to anyone and everyone.
