Synopses & Reviews
In this far-ranging and heartening collection, Derrick Jensen gathers conversations with environmentalists, theologians, Native Americans, psychologists, and feminists, engaging some of our best minds in an exploration of more peaceful ways to live on Earth. Included here is Dave Foreman on biodiversity, Matthew Fox on Christianity and nature, Jerry Mander on technology, and Terry Tempest Williams on an erotic connection to the land. With intelligence and compassion, Listening to the Land moves from a look at the condition of the environment and the health of our spirit to a beautiful evocation of eros and a life based on love.
"Here is a book of desperate wisdoms for anyone who has considered our human future and wondered, How must we live?"
--Louise Erdrich, author of Love Medicine
Conversations with environmentalists, theologians, Native Americans, psychologists, feminists, and philosophers
