ABOUT THE BOOK:
Listening to the Land is a collection of conversations with environmentalists, theologians, philosophers, Native Americans, psychologists, and feminists, centering around the question: If the destruction of the natural world isn’t making us happy, why we are doing it? Derrick Jensen engages some of our best minds in an exploration of more peaceful ways to live on the earth.
