Song writes about the legends of her ancestors, of the love and respect they had for all of the creatures of the world and for the earth itself.

Intent on keeping Native American traditions alive, she passes on the legends and stories of healing from her family to the reader.
Sharing some of the stories of her ancestors, Nansih writes:
The Native American remembers a time when people lived in harmony with all of nature and themselves.

About the Author: Nansih Spirit Song honors and is proud of her Cherokee heritage. She was born in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee (where she still maintains a redwood cabin) and was raised and educated in Miami Beach, Fla. Nansih’s grandmother gave her the name of Spirit Song because Nan always said, “Everything has spirit and a song to sing.” She still believes that. Nansih maintains a wildlife refuge. At one time, she was a state and federal rehabilitator, even being bitten by creatures ranging from alligators to eagles. She was one of the founders of the 200th chapter of the National Audubon Society, covering five counties.
Nansih wrote a weekly column for five newspapers and published a monthly, then quarterly, newsletter that covered the globe. She also appeared on television programs in Palestine, Texas, and Lufkin, Texas, always advocating the care of the universe in her lectures as well. In the late 1980s she wrote a successful pet care book on using herbs and natural means for healing.
