It is a unique occasion when one feels they are making a connection with our planet¿s current heroes. For that I say many thanks to Stephen Morris and the Editors of the Green Living Journal. By including writings by or on Rachel Carson, Euell Gibbons, Lynn Margulis, and Dan Chiras, The New Village Green has the beginnings of a new kind of encyclopedia. Drawn from wisdom already in print and requiring only reprint rights, its¿ essays will challenge you, enlighten you, and remind you: we are all in this together. Whatever area of our cosmos you inhabit, caring for it and yourself is our best bet for not making the ¿what became extinct in the 21st century¿ list. Arrived at after viewing pictures of the Earth from space, concepts like James Lovelock¿s Gaia Theory, Masanobu Fukuoka¿s One Straw Revolution, and Bill McKibben¿s book The End of Nature, which explained climate change to a mass audience, have been around awhile. Presenting them along with the new thoughts of Tamsyn Jones on the importance of soil and Eben Fodor¿s ideas on solar food drying shows the wide variety of essayists and brilliant choices by the editors. And while you are also learning about corn moons, magical flocks, Salt Spring Island dollars, and eco-hoods, begin to think of all the places that could use a copy of this book. It¿s one of the cheapest ways out there to get those around us excited about the possibilities it puts forth about regaining the balance we once enjoyed on our planet.Was this review helpful?
