Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Stations of Still Creek is the tale of a woman's personal journey and the healing inspiration she finds in the natural settings surrounding her. In a quest for personal and creative truth, Barbara Scot moves to her country cabin at Still Creek, in a National Forest preserve in the shadow of Mount Hood, to be still and thoughtful, in spite of the turmoil of a strained marriage.

Scot takes us on a spiritual journey incorporating seven inspiring natural formations - the Stations of Still Creek: The Old Growth Sculpture; The Burned-Out Cedar Snag; The Towering Maples; The Red Roots Station; The Four Alders with Perfect Posture; Maiden-Hair Fern Point; and The Green Cathedral.

Observing the stations over time, Scot experiences a rebirth--a letting go of past disappointments. Her deep communion with nature and attachment to the Stations are at the heart of her journey. Beautifully written and rich with natural detail, The Stations of Still Creek examines issues that many women (and men) are facing today: the compromises in a marriage, the breakdown of one's own body; the death of friends; and the choices everyone must make in a lifetime.

Synopsis:

After her husband's brush with death while climbing in the Himalayas, Barbara Scot retreats to her cabin deep in Oregon's Mount Hood National Forest to reexamine her own life's direction, both as an individual and in her marriage. Exploring the forest, Scot discovers a series of beautiful places she describes as her "stations", places where she experiences a deep communion with nature as she contemplates issues many women (and men) face today: the compromises in a marriage; the breakdown of one's own body; the death of friends; and the choices one must make in a lifetime. Scot's story is a moving chronicle of one woman's longing to express her innermost self, as well as an eloquent plea to preserve places where people can experience the healing powers of nature.
