»» From PWJ Publishing: LABYRINTH, Poems & Prose, edited by Patricia Wellingham-Jones
In this unusual collection, thirty-three poets and writers give voice to their thoughts and experiences about the ancient symbol of lifes passage and spiritual pilgrimage, the labyrinth. Mostly poetry, the book also features articles on labyrinths of southern Oregon and northern California and the labyrinth as a tool in working with children. A few mazes crept in and, because they are close relatives of labyrinths, were allowed to stay. Photos and drawings are included in the 82-page perfect-bound book. ISBN 0-939221-18-7.
Order Labyrinth for US$12.50 post paid from PWJ Publishing, PO Box 238, Tehama CA 96090-0238. Phone 1-530-384-1341. Email email@example.com.
