Synopsis

This book is a beautifully rendered exploration of the connection between humans and life on Earth through over 150 spectacular photographs, including those from the late Galen Rowell, and reproductions of artwork, as well as stunning electron micrographs and satellite images. David Suzuki’s bold and inspiring text is drawn from his life as a scientist, environmentalist, writer, and thinker. To expand upon the text and visuals are quotations from literature and poetry, retellings of myths, and lines from songs and psalms. The result is a rich and uplifting expression of the sacred balance of life.
