Kindred Book Description :

What do we think of when we hear the word “family”? Perhaps brothers and sisters, mother, father, cousins are brought to mind. In the strictest sense, of course these are all family members. But the bond goes much deeper than that. Families share a common ancestry or beginning which is not limited to people. Man has always had a strong connection with nature. It is the first thing we think of when we want to get away from life’s trials. But, perhaps it is not that we want to get away so much as it is our need to find familiarity, likeness, comfort and acceptance.
