In the winter of 2009, the coldest winter for many years, Mac Macartney walked from his birthplace in England across Wales to the island of Anglesey, navigating by the sun and the stars, with no map, compass, stove or tent.
The Children’s Fire tells the story of that journey, and seeks to lay bare the aching loss of knowing and understanding sacredness as it applies to fertile soil, clean water, fresh air, kinship, and children.
It asserts the emergence of a new story - part of a larger narrative that is surfacing all around the world. It is a passionate evocation of a generous, inclusive, diverse and spiritually significant world – the world of our longing.
“Mac Macartney is a prophet of cultural renewal, an interrupter of the Western egocentric-consumer worldview, a wild man, an elder, a humble pilgrim, perhaps
a present-day druid, and an enchanting storyteller.” - Bill Plotkin, author of Soulcraft and Wild Mind
Mac Macartney is an international speaker, writer and eco-entrepreneur. He has written many articles on sustainability, leadership, and spirituality. A key influence in his life is Native American wisdom which forms the basis for his new book The Children’s Fire, to be published in October 2018.
