THE BOOK IN 19 WORDS: A CANCER PATIENT DISCOVERS THAT GARDENING IS GOOD MEDICINE - AND FINDS A POWERFUL HEALING PARTNER IN HER OWN BACKYARD.

Jenny Peterson is a breast cancer survivor. Her long road through cancer treatment was hard, emotional and often deeply depressing. The one thing that pulled her out of the darkness was her desire to be able to garden again.

Peterson credits her garden with clearing her mental fog and overcoming her depression, physical limitations and pain. The Cancer Survivor's Garden Companion explores the therapeutic benefits of this vital "earth connection." With gentle empathy, beautiful photographs and easy how-to steps, she shows others how to create their own backyard haven for healing - a personal restorative garden - with a bonus of well-grounded guidance about diet, exercise, mental focus and spiritual renewal.
