Publisher Comments:

The environmental “tipping point” we approach is more palpable each day, and people are seeing it in ways they can no longer ignore—we need only turn on the news to hear the litany of what is wrong around us. Serious reflection, inspiration, and direction on how to approach the future are now critical.

Hope Beneath Our Feet creates a space for change with stories, meditations, and essays that address the question, “If our world is facing an imminent environmental catastrophe, how do I live my life right now?” This collection provides tools, both practical and spiritual, to those who care about our world and to those who are just now realizing they need to care. Featuring prominent environmentalists, artists, CEOs, grassroots activists, religious figures, scientists, policy makers, and indigenous leaders, Hope Beneath Our Feet shows readers how to find constructive ways to channel their energies and fight despair with engagement and participation. Presenting diverse strategies for change as well as grounds for hope, the contributors to this anthology celebrate the ways in which we can all engage in beneficial action for ourselves, our communities, and the world.

Contributors include:

Diane Ackerman

Paul Hawken

Derrick Jensen

Barbara Kingsolver

Francis Moore Lappé

Barry Lopez

Bill McKibben

Michael Pollan

Inspiring and motivating book! Very easy to read when you are super busy because it's written in short chapters, so you can take tiny bites and chew on it until your next spare moment to pick it up again. It is very solution oriented and leaves one feeling hopeful and empowered about the future. Also a great introduction to many authors you may not have read before. Once you read this, you will want to find their other works...it's a great resource for more information and where to look to find out about each individual author and their passions.
