Hope, Human and Wild: True Stories of Living Lightly on the Earth (World as Home) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Divided into three sections, Hope, Human and Wild profiles the efforts of three caring communities to preserve wilderness and reverse environmental devastation. They include the reforestation of McKibbens home territory, New Yorks Adirondack Mountains; solving traffic and pollution problems in the densely populated Curitiba, Brazil; and how the citizens of Kerala, India have demonstrated that quality of life doesnt depend on overconsumption of resources. This edition features a new introduction that revisits these places and explores how theyve changed over the years.

Synopsis:

In lyrical, penetrating essays, Bill McKibben offers an optimistic response to his best-selling The End of Nature. He journeys from the Adirondack Mountains to Brazil and India to profile the efforts of caring communities to preserve wilderness and reverse environmental devastation. These inspiring accomplishments offer hope for our planet's future.
