Tess has visited her grandmother many times without really being aware of the garden. But today they step outside the door and Tess learns that all of nature can be a garden. And if you take care of the plants that are growing, if you learn about them -- understanding when they flower, when they give fruit, and when to leave them alone -- you will always find something to nourish you. This gentle story demonstrates the First Nations' tradition of taking care of Mother Earth.

Elaine McLeod is a teacher who has lived and worked in many parts of the world. She was born in Mayo, Yukon, and is a member of the Na-Cho Nyak Dun First Nation. The stories she writes were originally told to her children so that they would know their history and understand their roots. Elaine lives in Whitehorse with her husband and four children. This is her first book.

Colleen Wood has worked as a graphic designer, illustrator and photographer in Vancouver for more than thirty years. She is an avid traveler, bringing her experiences home to use as creative inspiration. Her work has been shown in the Canadian Federation of Artists’ international art exhibition, and she has been showcased in International Artist Magazine.
