When Donna Mulvenna hits rock bottom, not even her love of nature can help. But that is before she goes to live in the Amazon rainforest where she is catapulted into a gripping adventure, swept into a world of spiritual visions, and shares daily encounters with wildlife. With laugh-out-loud humour and stirring poignancy, Donna shows what connecting with nature truly looks like. An impromptu field trip, living in a jungle shack, and forming a special bond with a tree, her insights on nature enliven every page of what is both a travel adventure and a deeply moving portrait of personal transformation.
