About the Author -- Elizabeth Flanders. M.A.

The author Elizabeth Flanders MA

This story grew out of my direct experience with young people—as a mother, grandmother, and teacher of 40 years in widely diverse settings. It is in response to our youth's hunger for a deeper understanding of themselves and their place in our world.

Living on a rural peninsula in Washington state, I have come to know the natural world intimately—in communication with the plants and trees, and the deer, birds, raccoons, rabbits, coyotes, and bears that frequent the land. They have shown me the beauty and joy that comes with living in reciprocity with nature and I co-created this story to help encourage the new breed of young people coming up to think about the future and the next seven generations.
