Praise For…


This is one of the rare books in which hope seems reasonable, and the grace and economy of the prose nourishes the parched spirit. -Robert Taylor, The Boston Globe

"An extraordinary book by one of America's most elegant writers. It is a veritable treasure trove of wisdom served up with love, imaginative verve, and spiritual sensitivity." -Values and Visions Reviews Service

"Sanders has blended the essences of philosophers, teachers, poets and authors, all filtered through his own unique Midwestern heart and mind, into passionate, crystal-clear, prize-winning essays." -James Alexander Thom, Indianapolis Star

"A small, bright arrowhead of a book: carefully hewn, piercing, balanced; betraying in its form its very substance. . . . [Sanders's] particular, urgent voice wields that arrowhead of hope into the hearts of his children, his students, and his readers." -GraceAnne A. DeCandido, Booklist
