Elixir: A Voyage into Alchemy – Kapka Kassabova

£10.99

Paperback

Set in the valley of the Mesta, one of the oldest inhabited river valleys in Europe and a nexus for wild plant gatherers, Elixir is an unforgettable exploration of the deep connections between people, plants and place. ‘Kassabova had me under her spell from page one’ GUARDIAN

Over several seasons, Kapka Kassabova spends time with the men and women of this magical region. She witnesses their rare knowledge, not only of mountain plants and the ancient practice of herbalism, but also of how to transform collective suffering into healing.

Elixir is, at its heart, an urgent, hopeful call to rethink how we live  in relation to one another, and to the world around us.
