The green tradition in American writing commands Buell's special attention, particularly environmental nonfiction from colonial times to the present. In works by writers from Crevecoeur to Wendell Berry, John Muir to Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson to Leslie Silko, Mary Austin to Edward Abbey, he examines enduring environmental themes such as the dream of relinquishment, the personification of the nonhuman, an attentiveness to environmental cycles, a devotion to place, and a prophetic awareness of possible ecocatastrophe. At the center of this study we find an image of Walden as a quest for greater environmental awareness, an impetus and guide for Buell as he develops a new vision of environmental writing and seeks a new way of conceiving the relation between human imagination and environmental actuality in the age of industrialization.
A powerful collection of essays and poetry by both prominent American environmental writers and exciting new voices.
Originally published by the Sierra Club in 1995, this handbook has already helped thousands of aspiring writers, scholars, and students share their experiences with nature and the outdoors. Using exercises and examples, John Murray covers genres, techniques, and publication issues. He uses examples from such masters as Barry Lopez, Annie Dillard, Larry McMurtry, Edward Abbey, Ernest Hemingway, and Henry David Thoreau. Also included are recommended readings, a directory of creative writing programs, professional organizations for writers, and a directory of environmental organizations. This revised edition includes a new chapter on nature writing and environmental activism. "Nature is our grandest and oldest home, older than language, grander than consciousness. John Murray knows that in his bones, and he shares his knowledge generously with anyone who opens this book. Whether you write about the earth for publication or only for deepening your perceptions, you will find keen-eyed guidance here."--Scott Russell Sanders, author ofStaying Put
Alchemy for Cells & Other Beasts charts a course into magical waters, anchoring itself in the frightening politicization of a woman's body. The chemistry of this conversation includes pomegranates for human heads, bones that can walk, and a ship sprung from a person's back, "floating farther from shore." The speaker in these incantations, behind these urgent watercolors, muses on the philosophies of geologic time, climate change, human genomes, and existential destruction. This book sets out to discover meaning in this terrible, beautiful time -- and suggests wonder is where we'll find it: "the diagnosis is strong / for the wild & wind mills." Full Color.
Most of us have fumbled through this life in search of that elusive path of destiny, but few will ever find it because it is shrouded in a mystery so well hidden that only God knows how to find it. Psychics and soothsayers will never find it. Astrologers will never find, nor horoscopes predict the secrets that belong to God. It so pleased God that he has hidden these things from the wise and prudent of this world. These secret things belong to God, for this is "The kingdom within us. The treasure in earthen vessels." Human eyes have now seen it, nor have our ears heard it, nor has it entered into the hearts of men the things that God has for those who love him. Only the Holy Spirit can reveal this treasure. In this book we explore this elusive treasure and God's message for all mankind. We return to God original plan for mankind. We were to reign in this life as kings and priests onto our God. We were to experience days of heaven upon the earth. Although some would say it is an impossible treasure to obtain, we will learn that with God nothing is impossible. The Spirit of God (prophecy) said he is about to "Raise a nation in the earth; a nation of those who are obedient to God. Power and glory shall be unto all who obey for it is the Glory of God Manifest in Men." "The Restoration of An Ancient Kingdom Dynasty." Those who would find their treasure in this season will become part of this great dynasty of wealth and power in the earth. This dynasty began with Adam and Eve at creation. Although this kingdom has been lost for generation, God promised a season in which it would return to the earth. That season begins now. Join us as we take a journey to find that true treasure of this life. It is the glory of the Kingdom of God. It is a return to the Garden of Eden.
