When the struggle to save oil-soaked birds and restore blackened beaches left him feeling frustrated and helpless, John Francis decided to take a more fundamental and personal stand—he stopped using all forms of motorized transportation. Soon after embarking on this quest that would span two decades and two continents, the young man took a vow of silence that endured for 17 years. It began as a silent environmental protest, but as a young African-American man, walking across the country in the early 1970s, his idea of "the environment" expanded beyond concern about pollution and loss of habitat to include how we humans treat each other and how we can better communicate and work together to benefit the earth. Through his silence and walking, he learned to listen, and along the way, earned college and graduate degrees in science and environmental studies. The United Nations appointed him goodwill ambassador to the world’s grassroots communities and the U.S. government recruited him to help address the Exxon Valdez disaster. Was he crazy? How did he live and earn all those degrees without talking? An amazing human-interest story, with a vital message, Planetwalker is also a deeply personal and engaging coming-of-age odyssey—the positive experiences, the challenging times, the characters encountered, and the learning gained along the way.

It’s fairly obvious that one can’t be a ‘perfect’ environmentalist. But that’s okay. Perfection isn’t the goal. A good life is. And a good life has as much to do with your intent as with the end result.” —from the Introduction The Newman’s Own Organics Guide to a Good Life is the essential book for those of us who can’t live in an organic hemp tepee but do care about our quality of life, global warming, clean water, and disappearing resources. Nell Newman shows you how to do what is within easy reach. Along with realistic, practical advice, she shows how and why living a more environmentally conscious life benefits you and your immediate surroundings. In addition to recycling and reusing, the book covers consumer-related steps such as • how buying and eating organic food supports small farms (and tastes better, too) • how you can buy clean power through your regular power company • which long-distance telephone companies offer competitive pricing and service while returning a portion of their profits to environmental and educational organizations • where to buy everything—from pots and pans to pet food—so that you can “vote with your dollar” and feel good about your purchases Packed with profiles of fascinating—and sometimes zany—people and a heavy dose of sanity, this book is organized according to the way you really live, making it easy to identify what areas of change are viable for you. A resource directory of publications, retailers, groups, and associations is included in the back of the book.

The characters and plot of this story are fictitious , and although some are derived from mythical, historical, symbolic and religious means, the story itself is fictitious. As such, the story is not intended to be taken seriously, judgmentally, nor religiously; but absorbed and discarded playfully with an open mind. Take in what you need; take what you feel, discard the rest. In no way does this book claim to know the right way to grow, because everyone must walk their own path, everyone must find their own centerpoint of view . This story comes from one perspective, one eye, one voice, one soul expressing various elements of human emotion, expression and opinion. This is a story, with a plot I believe to be of central proportions. It is up to you to find connections to your own Archetype. May you always Love your Creator and aim to shine bright like the greatest role model in the universe. Within creative bright light*Shines great insight. Aim to be the Author and Master your own world. *Everyone, every soul has a character, a story that can and does change the World. Ask yourself, who is your character?

Grand Winner of the 2014 Nautilus Book Awards Thoughtful observers agree that the planetary crisis we now face-climate change; species extinction; the destruction of entire ecosystems; the urgent need for a more just economic-political order-is pushing human civilization to a radical turning point: change or perish. But precisely how to change remains an open question. In Earth-honoring Faith, Larry Rasmussen answers that question with a dramatically new way of thinking about human society, ethics, and the ongoing health of our planet. Rejecting the modern assumption that morality applies to human society alone, Rasmussen insists that we must derive a spiritual and ecological ethic that accounts for the well-being of all creation, as well as the primal elements upon which it depends: earth, air, fire, water, and sunlight. He argues that good science, necessary as it is, will not be enough to inspire fundamental change. We must draw on religious resources as well to make the difficult transition from an industrial-technological age obsessed with consumption to an ecological age that restores wise stewardship of all life. Earth-honoring Faith advocates an alliance of spirituality and ecology, in which the material requirements for planetary life are reconciled with deep traditions of spirituality across religions, traditions that include mysticism, sacramentalism, prophetic practices, asceticism, and the cultivation of wisdom. It is these shared spiritual practices that can produce a chorus of world faiths to counter the consumerism, utilitarianism, alienation, oppression, and folly that have pushed us to the brink. Written with passionate commitment and deep insight, Earth-honoring Faith reminds us that we must live in the present with the knowledge that the eyes of future generations will look back at us.

Marie Collins possesses information critical to the well-being of the human race. Evil forces strike without pity. Justin learns of his mother's murder while both he and Rachel are ushered away by Eleanor, a spy from Subterrania. Eleanor explains why men who value power and money over human lives and health have murdered Justin's mother. Eleanor is mortally wounded in a shootout with Irish policemen. She renders the policemen unconscious with an Ivorian weapon before dying, and then turns the weapon upon Rachel. She embeds a sophisticated tracking device within Rachel's only dental filling, and implants a communication device within Rachel's left ear canal. Rachel is confined in Brockman Penitentiary, a prison for terrorists and an asylum for the insane. She serves as bait. Justin passes Moeeta's inquisition and is permitted to train as a Quazarian warrior. Golchuron teaches why Outlanders permit monetary gain to take precedence over relief from illnesses such as diabetes, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Justin listens in awe as he learns that Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were both born on the same day. He is astounded as his teacher explains how each of these men impacted the lives of human beings upon the earth's surface and molded the politics of society. Darian Sharp bursts into Rachel's room without knocking. He asks her to explain the contents of a letter that appeared on the front porches of Rachel's home town. Her eyes widen as she reads an invitation to her bridal party. At last Darian departs. She rises and grasps both hands to her breast, and then she breaks out laughing. There was never a nymph in Narnia or an elf in Rivendell that danced and sang with more mirth and abandon than Rachel Faith McMurray in her solitary prison suite.

While many experts point to the enormous complexity in addressing issues ranging from the destruction of ecosystems to the loss of millions of species, Thich Nhat Hanh identifies one key issue as having the potential to create a tipping point. He believes that we need to move beyond the concept of the "environment," as it leads people to experience themselves and Earth as two separate entities and to see the planet only in terms of what it can do for them. Thich Nhat Hanh points to the lack of meaning and connection in peoples' lives as being the cause of our addiction to consumerism. He deems it vital that we recognize and respond to the stress we are putting on the Earth if civilization is to survive. Rejecting the conventional economic approach, Nhat Hanh shows that mindfulness and a spiritual revolution are needed to protect nature and limit climate change. Love Letter to the Earth is a hopeful book that gives us a path to follow by showing that change is possible only with the recognition that people and the planet are ultimately one and the same.

Infused with feminist, Afro-Caribbean views of the science fiction and fantasy genres, this collection of offbeat and highly original works takes aim at race and racism in literature. In &“Report from Planet Midnight,&” at the International Association of the Fantastic in the Arts, an alien addresses the crowd, evaluating Earth's "strange" customs, including the marginalization of works by nonwhite and female writers. &“Message in a Bottle&” shows Greg, an American Indian artist, befriending a strange four-year-old who seems wise beyond her years. While preparing an exhibition, he discovers that the young girl is a traveler from the future sent to recover art from the distant past—which apparently includes his own work. Concluding the book with series editor Terry Bisson's Outspoken Interview, Nalo Hopkinson shares laughs, loves, and top-secret Caribbean spells.
