Teaching Places is a tale about a woman's spiritual search, how that search calls her to the land and how the land teaches. The telling spirals, exploring loss of faith, loss of voice, and the finding of a different, broader faith and a deeper, stronger voice. Her journey takes her to many special wilderness areas across Alberta -- from the edge of the Canadian Shield to mountains, prairies, boreal forest, and parkland. In the telling of her journey, she interweaves migration, evolution, family, landscape, noise, silence, and song.

Remarkable for the breadth of its treatment of the spiritual journey, combining prose and poetry, the book delves into old traditions (Aboriginal, Old European, mystical Christian) and new. Genealogists, geologists, students, and instructors of natural history and theology will find this book of great value in their study and in their courses.
