"In 1996, author and photographer Michael Collier set out in his forty-year-old Cessna seeking an expanded understanding and perspective on the Colorado River basin - a region spanning the states of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, California, Arizona, and New Mexico - which he had come to know intimately through twenty-five years of river running. Twelve thousand photographs and more than a year later, Collier had learned another way of knowing that magnificent landscape and now shares his altered vision in Water, Earth, and Sky: The Colorado River Basin." "One hundred forty images are accompanied by six essays, written by experts in various fields of natural history and ecology, that illuminate chosen aspects of this landscape."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Of all the planets GOD created, Earth alone has the capacity to foster plant, animal, and human life. From the beginning, GOD was the inventor and user of mathematical equations and the laws of force and matter. There could never be enough books written to describe in detail all the workings of creation. On day two of the Creation, GOD the FATHER, GOD the SON, and GOD the HOLY SPIRIT in one person, began forming the atmosphere, called the heavens. The land was called Earth and water was called the Seas. (Genesis 1:1-2; Hebrews 1: 1-2).

Earth Water and Sky

Earth  Water  and Sky

The glorious elemental mixture of earth, water, and sky around me is the home of nearly three hundred species of birds, and comprises one of my favorite places in the world.

"As I write this, I am sitting in a cabin at Cedar Point Biological Station in southwestern Nebraska.... The glorious elemental mixture of earth, water, and sky around me is the home of nearly three hundred species of birds, and comprises one of my favorite places in the world. Here no radio stations blare out the most recent results of meaningless sports events ... no traffic noises confound the senses. Instead the wind is the unquestioned dominating summer influence. The prairie grasses bend willingly and gracefully before it, and the leaves of the cottonwood trees convert its breezes into soft music." Paul Johnsgard is one of America's most prominent ornithologists and a world authority on waterfowl behavior. In these popularly written, often lyrical essays, he describes some of his most fascinating encounters with birds, from watching the annual mating displays of prairie-chickens on a hilltop in Pawnee County, Nebraska, to attempting to solve some of the mysteries surrounding Australia's nearly flightless musk duck. Reflecting his worldwide interests and travels, the birds Johnsgard describes inhabit many parts of the globe. Grouping the birds by the element they frequent most—earth, water, or sky—he weaves a wealth of accurate natural history into personal stories drawn from a lifetime of avian observation. And, as a bonus, Johnsgard's lovely pen-and-ink drawings illustrate each species he describes.

About The Book Finding Home: Earth, Sky, Ocean Spirit This book of poems, new and selected, has been years in the making. Nearing a seventieth decade, one is reminded of Leonard Cohen’s admonition to make a record of one’s life. Adrienne Rich suggests that one finds the deepest truths of a woman’s life in her poetry, poetry that draws from and illuminates her autobiography. Its language is precocious and uncanny in its efforts to explicate the nature of her lived experience. I have taught creative writing in a number of contexts: with troubled adolescents, in colleges and universities, in a women’s prison, and with patients and clients in my own private practice in New London, Connecticut. It was always the journaling that revealed and explicated the individual’s trauma and allowed them to move to what might be called a quotidian delight, which they had not been able to find before—that life might hold a quotidian ecstasy was a new and wondrous idea to them, and one they could find access to. The earth, sky, ocean, spirit, and their own embodied and ensouled selves were the means to their own connectedness to the universe. Human language began with woman’s singing, her music, her natural response to giving life, and perceiving the plenitude around her. A mother murmuring vowels and consonants, soft language of warmth, comfort, and tenderness. There is reason to believe that at one time on the island of Crete, long ago, there was a woman-centered culture in which the values of nurturing, living in harmony with the natural world, using a language that emerged from this matrix. Warriors came, the earlier culture was destroyed, and the language reflected the new and violent warring culture. The new patriarchal lexicon focused on the lived experience of the men. It concerned power, victory, defeat, and death. It was literal, denotative as opposed to connotative; it was didactic, hierarchical, and dismissive of the language and life of the woman’s perspective. It would seem that in contemporary American culture, the exclusion of what we might call poetic language—that is, language that expresses the truth and affects of the human being—has become obsolete, replaced by patriarchal language ubiquitous in the political violence of the day and the seeming waning of what we thought was an American way of life. These poems attempt to illuminate a woman’s experience of her world. They further attempt to suggest the need for Whitman’s notion of the need for an increasingly “capacious imagination.” Perhaps men are not from Mars and women from Venus. Adrienne Rich suggests, there is hope for a common language more in harmony with the truth, reality, and ambiguity of the natural world. And perhaps after all, even with the angst and anxiety of living in this world, we are all poets, soul-searching people, all of whom experience quotidian ecstasy—moments of the pure joy of living, mystery, and incomprehensibleness, bringing delight and clarity, affirming and confirming the wondrous miracle of our lives.

For many Americans, Christian missionary efforts have usually involved distant and exotic places. Sometimes, however, we can learn more about missions and interreligious engagement by looking in our own backyard. This collection of essays deriving from a consultation on missionary history and attitudes in colonial Jamestown, Virginia, explores long-standing assumptions related to Christian mission by listening to Native American voices. What were the ideologies and theologies that motivated early Virginia colonists? How did certain understandings of mission and church provide support and legitimacy for invasion and exploitation? What were, and are, the responses of indigenous populations, and how should Christian mission to Native Americans continue in light of this history? This book addresses these still very relevant questions and explores ways in which new understandings of Christian mission are needed in the expanding religious and cultural diversity of the twenty-first century.

"John Brenkman's book addresses fundamental questions in modern aesthetics by folding the recent "affective turn" in critical theory back toward the "linguistic turn," against which it is usually opposed. His aim is to re-ground affect theory on the reflections of major modern philosophers (particularly Kant, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Deleuze) about sensation, feeling, emotion, mood, passion, and attunement, and to test those reflections through specific poetic works. Affect, Brenkman argues, can be studied with some precision in poetry because it resides there not in speaking about feelings but in the very speaking and way of speaking. Brenkman confronts Kant, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Deleuze with an intentionally heterogeneous set of authors and artists, including Pinter and Poe, Baudelaire and Li-Young Lee, Shakespeare, Tino Sehgal and Rineke Dijkstra, Francis Bacon, and Percy Bysshe Shelley and Jorie Graham. The book ultimately has much to tell us about the vocation of criticism. Criticism, Brenkman, is incapable of systematicity but must instead be attuned to the singularity and plurality of literary and artistic creations. For criticism today, "What is art?" is a less pressing question than "What does this work do?" and "What do these works do?""--

An injured dragonfly is picked from a car grill and placed on a rock to recuperate, only to materialize at a distant trailhead to usher the hiker toward a set of ancient pictographs he might have otherwise missed. This is the spiritual world of Michael Leeb, who captures his outdoor experiences in this collection of poetry. He contemplates the magpie's song as winter approaches, and reveals how the private courtship of two crows makes him avert his eyes. The poems in this collection ring with deep appreciation for indigenous culture and history, and how they were formed by the land itself. A reverence for those who came first, and the effects of time and natural forces like wind and water in shaping the natural world, are evident in Michael's work. Leeb's narratives get us off the couch and into hiking shoes, or a canoe, to appreciate the wild environment of southern Alberta that persists around us. He tells us to LOOK closer and SEE how crystallized salt on dark basalt stone looks like frost flowers. And how the Seven Sisters stone monoliths of the Crowsnest Pass resemble Stonehenge. His knowledge of paleogeography and geomorphology enlighten us as to how natural formations came to be over time in poems poignant with the interplay of nature and spirituality.

Seeing Nature is a series of true stories or parables that offer tools for understanding relationships in the natural world. Many of the stories take the reader to wild landscapes, including canyons, tundra, and mountain ridges, while others contemplate the human-made world: water-diversion trenches and supermarket check-out lines. At one point, Krafel discovers a world in a one-inch-square patch of ordinary ground. Inspiring for parents and teachers seeking to encourage excitement about the positive role of people in nature, Krafel's work harkens to St. Exupery's The Little Prince, Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, and Jean Giono's The Man Who Planted Trees. As Barbara Damrosch has noted: [This book] is a gift.... With curiosity, wit, and a spare and graceful style, Krafel notes why birds in flocks land as they do, how islands can move upstream in a river, how kelp forests, swaying gently, break the force of the sea's power, how tundra plants create whole ecosystems on bare rock from mere specks of life. Yet there are no long-winded sermons about the woods, or cute anthropomorphizations of animals. The book's economical, unsentimental style is part of its originality. Paul Krafel's years as a park ranger afforded him time to walk and think--his job was to observe the world around him. He is now a teacher, creating a curriculum for young people that is built on a startlingly simple truth: The world around us is an extended conversation between "upward spirals"--nature in regenerative, procreative modes--and downward spirals toward entropy and disintegration. As nature refreshes and rebuilds, the downward spirals are overcome. Nature's process becomes the process of replenishing hope.
