As summer arrives, so does our Summer Caravans newsletter. Tessa Bielecki has been enthralled by the gigantic saguaro cactus, sometimes called “the monarch of the desert,” for fifty years. Find out why. Get updates on our next books, and share our delight that Tessa’s book, Holy Daring: The Earthy Mysticism of St. Teresa, the Wild Woman of Avila, received a 2016 Silver Nautilus Award in the “Heroic Journeys” category. Tessa’s recently updated edition of this book about her “best friend” includes a new foreword by Adam Bucko.
