Wicks—bestselling author of Riding the Dragon and respected spiritual guide, therapist, and speaker—reflects on childhood summers spent away from New York on his family’s farm. He mines those memories for lessons in finding contentment amidst hectic contemporary life.

Wicks opens a window into his personal life, relating stories of the people and places that shaped his spiritual perspective in youth and early in his professional career.
