(from dust jacket)
Promenade Home is the absorbing story of a Texas wife, mother, and schoolteacher who has looked at health from both sides- from the modern perspective of dependency on doctors, hospitals, and medication and from the practice of a traditional way of life.

Following [many illnesses]... she was finally diagnosed as having tumors in her ovaries. She visited many doctors, internists, and therapists, none of whom ever mentioned diet as a possible factor in her problems.

Finally in 1979, Gale was introduced to macrobiotics- a way of life centered on whole, unprocessed foods- at a seminar given by Michio and Aveline Kushi in a church in Dallas. Rediscovering the grain-based way of eating that brought her grandparents to the American West in a covered wagon, her promenage home to health and happiness began.
