This will be a real treat each month for whoever buys it especially as I imagine the final print copy will be gorgeous. It will really encourage you to connect with nature and take more time for yourself each month. A perfect gift for Christmas
What a great update to a classic type of book!
My favorite parts, hands down, were the folklore sections of this book. They were varied and interesting, and though I'm pretty big on folklore in general, there was still a lot I hadn't head before, so that was nice. The well being and self care bits were very well tailored to modern day practices, and the crafting ideas were interesting too. So many interesting little bits, page after page! I love that this is geared toward just making us aware of what's going on around us - just the act of knowing what to looks for makes you more in touch with your surroundings. Even if you're not interested in all the things in the book, or don't try/do everything, I feel like there is something for everyone here, and it's so well organized and structured.
While this book is planed around 2023, I think it's incredibly helpful to read it a bit in advance to have some time to plan if you want to utilize the information therein.
Thank you @NetGalley, @WatkinsPublishing, and #Melinda Salisbury for allowing me to read and review The Way Back Almanac 2023.
This is a gorgeous book that helps you become close to nature. Whether you are on a new journey and revisiting this journey, it will have everything you need to reinvigorate your path to becoming one with nature.
The book has an introduction on how and why the author, Melinda Salisbury chose each subject in each month.
Then, beginning in January 2023, you can follow along. There are food recipes, recommended books to read, ideas/recipes on how to care for yourself and lots of space to take notes.
This would be a fabulous Christmas gift!
