Praise for The Soulful Child: Twelve Years in the Wilderness

"The Soulful Child is a profound memoir, eloquently and extravagantly told. . . . Gallaway does not just tell us, she makes us feel the love and the anger as we are drawn deeply into the life of this soulful child, entranced and embraced by wild nature, yet needing to understand the reality of the wider human world. It is a story . . . about hope, love and resilience, and about freeing the spirit by learning to forgive."
—Ed Khmara, Emmy-Nominated Writer, Actor and Producer

"Get saddled up and ready for the best fire-side book of the season."

Out of the counterculture movement of the sixties arises a true story about risking it all for true freedom. Folk singer Jerry Gallaway and ex-ballet dancer Reva Lynn Gallaway leave behind a life of opportunity and fame to raise a family in the woods of Northern New Mexico. For six children born in the wild with no birth certificates, no worldly identity, only the song of nature printed on them at birth, the woods became a place of learning and a place of refuge, until tragedy uprooted their foundation, leaving the youngsters split between two worlds.

When forced to choose for themselves, would they live in nature with their parents, or seek a new life in society?

Chloe Rachel Gallaway is the soulful child, bringing us the healing power of the wild through her photographic memories, authentic voice, and a tale of modern-day warriors and free thinkers carrying in their hearts an essential message about the priceless gifts of Mother Nature, her cycles of life and loss, and the transformative power of forgiveness.
