Did you find this link through HerbNet.com or a search for AncientEarthWisdom.com?
My site was originally titled “Ancient Earth Wisdom” but it’s now combined with my new site. With time I’ll have more herbal related posts and pages. The link at HerbNet is outdated. Here’s my new information regarding herb walks: http://www.wildozark.com/herb-walks-presentations-in-northwest-arkansas/. We live so far off the beaten path that it’s easier for me to organize walks at the local trails and parks. There are many good sites in this area for such activities.
Fantasy Stories – set in the Ozarks
Here’s what one reviewer said about “Ozark Pixies”:
“This story moves fast, so you can’t miss a single beat. On par with the most classic of fairy legends, it brings a feel of the old country to the new. The author gives the perfect juxtaposition of tempting allure and heart-racing fear, something I believe all good fairy stories should have. If you love the little people and you love twists and turns even more, you will love this little gem of a tale.” – AK Francis
Madison also writes articles about the plants and land she loves. Check out the Cornerstone posts for the best of these articles, offered to you completely free.The Ozarks are rich with imagery and real-life experience where the balance of nature is still in effect, where predator and prey still dance the dance of life and death.

If you’d like to find your plant and nature allies, perhaps spending some time on the trails in the woods on an herb walk or two will help: http://www.wildozark.com/herb-walks-presentations-in-northwest-arkansas/.

An Excerpt from Symbiosis
Here’s an example of how I have combined my photography of the Wild Ozark Herbs and my writing. This is an excerpt from my novel, Symbiosis. It may or may not end up in the final cut. The photo is an image from one of the slides in the “Wild Ozark Herbs” slide-show DVD.
With a jolt, the barge ran aground. Ki and Jesse disembarked. While he helped the driver pull it onshore, she wandered to the brambles at the forest’s edge where the bushes were loaded with bright, sticky promises. But what did they promise?
Nothing since she’d left home had followed the logic she’d always taken for granted. She debated whether it was safe to eat the berries here or if the warning had applied only to certain foods of the world they’d just left. It might be best to wait for him to catch up. She sat in the cool shade and mulled over the story he’d begun telling her about the razing his father had carried out at the temple of her birth home.
He plopped down beside her.
“What was your father’s intention – to kill the tree?” She asked
He studied her a moment before answering.
“You. He wanted to kill you.”
