Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1990, this revised edition of Home Place reopens an important chapter in writing about nature and ecology. The essays in Home Place range from the personal--the search for a childhood vision of pristine grassland, the boy who goes from hunting to respecting wildlife around him--to theory on land use, environmental law, agriculture, education and technology as it affects the relationships between humanity and the Ecosphere. Home Place is even more important today than when it was first released. This new edition has been factually updated with commentary by the author. There is also a foreword by Wes Jackson of The Land Institute in Salina, Kansas. Over the years as an environmental activist and teacher, author Stan Rowe has made a definitive mark on writings about ecology and about human interaction with the environment. Each essay in this collection artfully circles back to the notion that people are not the sole expression of importance on Planet Earth, arguing that humans are dependant parts of the Ecosphere, from which we evolved and by which we are sustained.
