COTTONWOOD -- Do fairies exist? Ask Linda Cooper and the answer will be an emphatic yes.

As a landscape designer and nature photographer, she has worked closely with the natural world for more than 25 years. It was during this time that Linda Cooper says she established a close, trusting relationship with fairies and other 'nature spirits', as she calls them.

After co-creating thousands of gardens for her clients in California with the Nature Spirits, Linda Cooper, who is also known as The Crystal Garden Fairy, had the idea to collaborate with them on a different kind of project -- a book.

Embracing the Spirit of Nature is a collection of original rarely seen photographs of Nature Spirits taken by Linda Cooper, designed to change the way readers experience nature and bring attention to the direct impact our lives have on nature's elements. The book includes dialogue between Linda Cooper and the nature spirits, along with tips for communicating and receiving guidance from these mythical beings.

"With my intense focus creating gardens came the realization that nature spirits were working with me," says Linda Cooper. "My gardens began to vibrate with a magical quality. Becoming aware of the fairies and gnomes, as well as learning to co-create with them, will help us all appreciate and support nature in an expanded way."

A nature enthusiast to the core, Linda Cooper encourages readers to open their minds to the possibility of infusing their own lives with magic.
