The Sunflower Forest

What a treat: William Jordan just sent me a copy of his book The Sunflower Forest. He notes some of the many resonances between it and The Ecological Thought:

"What we call Nature is monstrous and mutating, strangely strange all the way down and all the way through." (The Ecological Thought, p. 61)

"...creation is trouble. Or, as in the old joke about the turtles---if the world rests on a cosmic turtle, what does the turtle stand on? Well, it's turtles all the way down---creation is trouble all the way down." (Sunflower Forest, p. 40-41).

I have been reading both both books fairly closely in the past months - a fairly useful exercise. A person could teach a course about promising new approaches to environmental thought and action using these books as the pillars. In fact that's just what I am going to do.... Liam
