El árbol de la evolución de la vida se convierte en una parte literal de la historia, sumergida hasta las puntas de (las "islas") en un océano de Tiempo que se hace cada vez más y más profundo.

Child's drawing of the Parsley Guardian.

Dear Mr. Elpel,

      I wanted to write to you and let you know just how much my family is loving Shanleya's Quest. It is such a wonderful resource. We bought it together with Botany in a Day and have all been learning so much, including myself who had never learned botany as a child.

      Anyhow, I thought you might enjoy seeing the work that my children have been doing by following your books. We are homeschoolers and have been studying botany since September. We sincerely thank you for your wonderful books and for all they have taught us.

Blessings,
Rebecca B. and family



Playing the Shanleya's Quest Patterns in Plants Card Game.

Hi Thomas

      The card game is superb and is unlike anything we have here, it compliments the shanleya's quest book wonderfully and there is always call for good ways to introduce children to Bushcraft. My wife wouldn't let me go to sleep last night until she had beat me at the memory game and crazy flowers at least 5 times, but whilst out flying Torin (my harris hawk) today I was able to identify the family of almost all the flowers I saw as a result.

All the best

Stuart
