The Arrow Tree: Healing from Long COVID (Hardcover)
Award-winning professor and author Phyllis Weliver was in the first wave to fall ill with long COVID. Moving from the city to a woodland cottage above a Michigan lake in order to regain health, Weliver reflects on the process of integrating mind/body health with the natural world. As she recovers from long-haul COVID, the author draws inspiration from forest bathing, traditional Odawa and Ojibwe culture, ancient Chinese philosophy, and British and American literature. While this memoir may be of special interest to those dealing with chronic illness, Weliver's narrative ultimately addresses how we might all mend from the bruising pace of modern life.
