American-Wild-Cover_sm
In his books and essays there is a clear sense that he has fully lived in and wrestled with the places and the people he writes about. This gives his writing the sort of calm authority that reminds me often of Barry Lopez. —David Knowles, publisher of EarthLine More Info »

Lungs of my Earth evokes particular places dear to the author, sweeping them into our imaginations with a rush of delighted language to create ‘a luminous map of the sacred’. Part field-work and part sky-dreaming, it is at once exact and exultant—a vibrant song to the earth and echo chamber of the earth’s own singing. More Info »

Creatively Maladjusted by Theodore Richards

Creatively Maladjusted
Creatively Maladjusted, Theodore Richards
“Richards wants to shape edu­ca­tion by story rather than by infor­ma­tion, by resisting con­sumerism rather than edu­cating for it. The goal of edu­ca­tion, he reminds us, ‘is not to make better schools, but to make a better world.’ And ‘the ulti­mate rel­e­vance of a school is what kind of civ­i­liza­tion it inspires our chil­dren to create.’ Modern indus­trial cul­ture has pretty much defined edu­ca­tion in its terms; we can do much better today and must. The metaphors, nar­ra­tives and values of our edu­ca­tional system are out­moded. A Wisdom Education Movement can bring alive new values that assure a ‘nur­turing, cre­ative, joyous, inspiring place.’ This book is well worth reading; and dis­cussing; and arguing; and enacting.” —Matthew Fox, author of Creativity: Where the Divine and the Human Meet More Info »

Border Crossings by Ian Marshall

Border Crossings
Border Crossings
“The International Appalachian Trail runs north from Mount Katahdin seven hundred miles to the end of the Gaspé Peninsula. Inspired by Basho, Ian Marshall hiked it for six summers, probing the poetics of haiku while exploring a vast and beautiful wilderness little known in the US. Marshall is an engaging trail companion and a superb story teller, with a self deprecating wit and sharp intellect that spice up his observations and ideas. Like Basho, he finds the miraculous in the common and elevates the humble walk into a spiritual practice, sprinkling his narrative with lovely original haiku that seem to have condensed in the moment, like droplets of dew. Backpackers will appreciate his pungent descriptions of life on the trail, and ecocritics will savor his abundant insights on poetry, nature, and culture. This lively book serves up a classic blend of high adventure, literary pilgrimage, and self discovery. It tastes as tart and fresh as wild raspberries.” —John Tallmadge, past-president of the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment and author of The Cincinnati Arch: Learning from Nature in the City More Info »

Cosmosophia by Theodore Richards

Cosmosophia: Cosmology, Mysticism, and the Birth of a New Myth
Cosmosophia: Cosmology, Mysticism, and the Birth of a New Myth
“Richards writes skillfully and soulfully about the most pressing issues of our times, and the deeper crisis out of which they have emerged. Drawing from a vast trove of knowledge about the world’s religious, mystical, and philosophical traditions, he extracts the most valuable gems, polishes them with the revolutionary insights of modern science, and forges a radiant, new cosmosophy—a universal wisdom that honors the wisdom of the universe. The beauty of this mythos is that it, like the cosmos, is not static but dynamic, inviting our active participation and imaginative engagement. This book succeeds in instilling reverence for a living universe and hope for a dying planet. May Cosmosophia blossom and flourish in the hearts of all beings!” —Darrin Drda, author of The Four Global Truths More Info »

The Salmon in the Spring by Jason Kirkey

The Salmon in the Spring: The Ecology of Celtic Spirituality
The Salmon in the Spring: The Ecology of Celtic Spirituality
“Here at the end of the Cenozoic Era with the life systems withering away, a surprising creativity appears, a kind of mystical balancing act. The world’s spiritual traditions are entering into deeply engaged conversations through which the riches of each are ignited in new ways. With The Salmon in the Spring, Jason Kirkey has boldly carved out his place in this exciting work with his original interpretations of the concepts and stories of ancient Ireland . . . Kirkey’s vision speaks directly to our present ecological challenge. Rejecting those nature-denying forms of spirituality that have been used too easily to justify our domestication of the planet, The Salmon in the Spring announces its thrilling spiritual foundation: “Our wild nature is our soul.” —Brian Swimme, California Institute of Integral Studies More Info »
