BOUND TO THE EARTH explores past and present strategies to create
ecological sustainability and provides a model for re-orienting our
models of thinking, based on principles of biological ecology, as a
prescription for bringing modern society into harmony with nature.
After learning to "think like a tree," the book then looks at some
possible future scenarios where pioneering individuals take some
innovative steps toward ecological thinking and what results these
choices may bring. This is a book about to think about ecological
balance and planning for a sustainable future filled with suggestions
about how to make it happen.
"...useful and informative. New insightful
approaches to solving the environmental problems we now face."
