A deep searching into the ways we become dammed and how we recover fluidity. It is a journey through memory and time, personal and shared landscapes to discover the source, the flow and the deltas of women and water.

Rooted in rivers, inspired by wetlands, sources and tributaries, this book weaves its path between the banks of memory and story, from Florida to Kyoto, storm-ravaged New Orleans to London, via San Francisco and Ghana. We navigate through flood and drought to confront the place of wildness in the age of technology. Part memoir, part manifesto, part travelogue and part love letter to myth and ecology, The Other Side of the River is an intricately woven tale of finding your flow ... and your roots.

Eila Kundrie Carrico is a mesmerising new female voice in the American canon of nature writing. Her writing is a celebration of wild nature and cultures that has the power to awaken a felt sense of our collective human story as deeply embedded in the natural world.

An instant classic for the new paradigm.
Lucia Chivola Birnbaum, award-winning author and Professor Emeritus

Eila Kundrie Carrico, author of The Other Side of the River, Womancraft Publishing

Author of The Other Side of the River (Jan 2016).

Eila Kundrie Carrico grew up in rural central Florida. Her curiosity led her down a meandering path of discovery from a young age. She was inspired by her studies in journalism, anthropology and religion to travel around the world and teach in Paris, Ghana, Thailand and India. She studied yoga and embodied archetypes for nine years before completing a master’s degree in Engaged World Psychology and then an MFA in Creative Writing and Consciousness in San Francisco.

Eila is a weaver and wordsmith who delights in the mystery and magic of landscapes and memory. She lives in Berkeley with her partner and their baby boy where she teaches yoga and weaves stories. The Other Side of the River is her first book.
