Product Details


“With a childhood curiosity and sense of wonder, Susi Gott Séguret opens our eyes to enduring truths amidst a world too often overcome with clatter and a loss of harmony with nature and community.”
Dr. Doug Orr, President Emeritus, Warren Wilson College and co-author of Wayfaring Strangers
“In Child of the Woods, Susi Gott Séguret transports the reader into the southern Appalachian culture as only one who has lived it and loved it could do.  Her prose stimulates the senses as surely as huckleberry jam on a biscuit warm from the wood-fired oven on a frosty morning.”
Dr. Alan Haney, Dean Emeritus, College of Natural Resources, University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and author of Backyard Stories, Following Old Trails, Jewels of Nature, and Laughing in the Wilderness
“A must-read for anyone wanting to unlock the clues of passage into what humans need to become more actualized human beings and fulfill their potential.”
Eustace Conway, Mountain Men, Turtle Island visionary
“[A]n incomparable reflection of growing up in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee during the early 1960s that is without peer for color, atmosphere, humor, music and the qualities that show how rich life can be.”
Paul Peabody, Grammy-winning First Violinist, New York City Ballet
“I laughed, I cried, and by the end I was uplifted. I will be reading it again. It is just that kind of book.”
Sheila Kay Adams, NC Heritage Award winner and author of My Old True Love
“The clarity of Susi Gott Séguret’s imagery evokes a time I fear we won’t see again. She has captured what may be the final moments of an Appalachian lifestyle that is being replaced by the distractions and demands of modernity.”
Wilson Roberts, author of All that Endures and The Serpent and the Hummingbird
“Séguret’s voice is authentic and pure, the redemptive force of her imagination seizes on cowpies and cliffsides, caves and foxes and banjo chords that lift you, for a moment, from the chaos and clutter of our current lives, into a more idyllic place.”
Keith Flynn, author of Colony Collapse Disorder and editor of The Asheville Poetry Review
“From these pages emerge the wonder, the joy, the gratitude of living in a sacred place…nothing surpasses the beauty of the world God gave us.”
Locke Harvey, mother of four and fellow wanderer
