This book is a small tribute to the plant world and the natural affections of Gabriela Mistral, and the enormous legacy she gave us.
Walking, smelling, feeling, touching, reading and listening to her words in a garden full of life, metaphors, contemplations and endless images is a new path to reach her.
The four years that Camila Palaveccino's research, transcription, selection and illustration of this book lasted, were a magical reminder that Gabriela Mistral is such an enormous writer and thinker, that she is herself a garden of wonders.
She herself is the bee that with her words draws these flower-scented pages.
