A fascinating, first-hand account of the vast powers and true nature of the Elemental Kingdom

"To anyone who may have expressed a wish to see and talk to nature spirits . . . remember it took 63 years for my wish to be granted, so don't lose hope."

Have you ever wished for something with your whole heart? As a child, R. Ogilvie Crombie (Roc) made a wish as he dropped a penny into a wishing well - he asked to be able to see fairies and talk to them. In Encounters with Nature Spirits, we follow Roc's path as, many years later, he meets the faun Kurmos in the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh, discovers the realm of the elementals, and, eventually, meets the great god Pan himself. In his conversations with Pan, elves, and other nature spirits Roc realizes that the elemental realm is vastly more powerful than our human kingdom and possesses an ability to create far beyond our human means.

Encounters with Nature Spirits is a reminder to us all of the importance of our relationship with the nature kingdom. Through his example, Roc places emphasis on connecting and working in harmony with nature spirits. True co-creation with nature, working with rather than against the elemental kingdom, can bring about vital positive change to our endangered eco-system. The elementals are open to working with mankind--the question is, are we humans open to engaging with and respecting them again?

"A wonderful classic. Anyone interested in nature and its hidden dimensions will be delighted and inspired by this real-life story of one of Britain's greatest real-life wizards and wise men." * William Bloom, author of Working with Angels, Fairies and Nature Spirits * "Bringing forth a positive message of change and cooperation with the spirits of the elemental kingdoms and the ecology of Mother Earth herself, Encounters with Nature Spirits is a fell-good memoir ideal for a quite read at home before the ire, or deep in the middle of the woods." * The Witches' Almanac *
