Listening to the Land


add to cart

Listening to the Land is a collection of interviews with environmentalists, feminists, theologians, philosophers and Native Americans centering around the question: If the destruction of the natural world isn't making us happy, why are we doing it?

In this far-ranging and heartening collection, Derrick Jensen engages 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.
