A field guide to the creative life of the soul, unfettered, fierce, and radiant.
Dr. Estés tells the story of her Uncle Tovar a peasant farmer from the Old Country who lived in a time when the Nazis first, and then the Red Army decimated their village in the Old Country, burning to the ground the remote farmland forests the people depended on so, forcing the families on marches to work camps... and worse. The refugees who survived the wars (for it was more than one war) straggled to America only to find that here too, government forces destroyed forests. But the soul of "this man" knew a fierce and heartbroken way through...
In this small work, Dr. Estés tells about one of the surviving old women from Dr. Estés' paternal family, who was attempting to hide from the prevailing army during WWII, and sheltered with a spirit soul in a small lean-to, and together while fleeing the destructions swirling around them, they spent a part of their night heartening each other with remembered stories of death ...and return to Life.
