Overview

For readers of Earth in the Balance and everyone concerned about the future of our planet, here is a book that offers a practical and spiritual approach to saving the environment.

Long before the age of discovery and technological expansion, the native populations of North America lived in peace and harmony with the natural world around them. This unique and remarkable book collects the sacred wisdom of the Sioux, Pueblo, Hopi, Navajo, and other native peoples to show how we can create our own sacred ecology. Beginning with a fascinating inquiry into the true story behind Chief Seattle's famous ecology speech, David Suzuki - internationally renowned author and TV host of The Nature of Things, environmental activist, and award-winning scientist - and science writer Peter Knudtson have juxtaposed the "wisdom of the elders" alongside the ideas of some of the wisest and most respected scientists of our time in a stunning synthesis that provides a blueprint for saving our planet. Magical, enlightening, empowering, and profound, Wisdom of the Elders is on of the most important books you will ever read.
