    Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude
    Book Description:

    Catalog of Unabashed Gratitudeis a sustained meditation on that which goes away-loved ones, the seasons, the earth as we know it-that tries to find solace in the processes of the garden and the orchard. That is, this is a book that studies the wisdom of the garden and orchard, those places where all-death, sorrow, loss-is converted into what might, with patience, nourish us.
