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.

As a mentor and facilitator of the writing process, Gallawayl combines her experience of growing up connected to nature with her training in mindfulness tools and literacy-based writing techniques to deliver a uniquely powerful process of self-transformation and empowerment through writing.

"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." --Edward Khmara, Emmy-Nominated writer, actor and producer
