Hope Beneath Our Feet

Hope Beneath Our Feet, Restoring Our Place in the Natural World is a new anthology of essays by authors who responded to this question: In the midst of environmental crisis, how can we live NOW?

I am unabashedly promoting the book because I am one of the authors. To be published along with the writers and thinkers to whom I have turned for inspiration over the last twenty years, is a huge honor for me. Some of these mentors are: Frances Moore Lappé, Bill McKibben, Wendell Berry, Barry Lopez and Howard Zinn.

The book’s genesis is the work of Martin Keogh, its Editor.  In the forward, Martin describes how his children expressed a sense of hopelessness about the future as they considered climate change or nuclear war—challenges that dwarf our sense of being able to make a difference. He wondered how human beings can keep hope and live well in very uncertain times. In 2006 Martin issued a call to writers to submit an essay answering the question above.

The book is published by North Atlantic Press and is now in its third printing – barely a month after its release.

  1. Thanks. The workshop is October 9, Saturday at Barnes and Noble. Not sure of the time yet but there are a lot of events on that day with teachers and parents and children invite to view books that encourage youth and children to have hope and to take action to build a world that is safe and beautiful.

    I look forward to it.

  3. With the whole thing which seems to be building throughout this specific subject matter, your opinions are actually somewhat radical. Nonetheless, I beg your pardon, but I can not subscribe to your whole strategy, all be it exhilarating none the less. It looks to everyone that your remarks are not completely validated and in reality you are yourself not really totally confident of the argument. In any event I did take pleasure in looking at it.

  4. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
