Review: ‘Anne has graciously created a book which recalls the essence of education. She reclaims the value of community, creativity, imagination, ritual and wildness as essential in the generation of whole young adults. At a time when the soul of education is being systematically stripped from our classroom, Jacopetti enables us to remember what an education of the soul actually entails. This book is a gift, not only to educators, but for parents, mentors and anyone granted the opportunity to nourish the heart and mind of our children.’  – Francis Weller, Author, The Wild Edge of Sorrow
