This ingenious book takes lessons from the decisions we all make the moment we do anything in our gardens to understand the environmental social and spiritual challenges facing us all. At the end of it all the greatest gift our garden can give is peace - and the Masers give great help in finding that. Chris Maser is a prolific writer on environmental issues while his wife Zane teaches astrology and meditation.

"Unlike many other scientists, who spend their energy on their science and keep their own counsel, in this book Maser clearly and articulately applies his technical knowledge to his place in the world. "And, happily, he shares his philosophy with coherence and forthrightness. He's been thinking about humanity's place in the natural order of things for as long as he's been gardening." Bill Monroe, The Oregonian

Övrig information

Chris Maser spent over twenty-five years as a research scientist in natural history and ecology in forest, shrub steppe, sub-arctic, desert and coastal settings. Trained primarily as a vertebrate zoologist, he was a research mammalogist in Nubia, Egypt (1963-1964), with the Yale University Peabody Museum Prehistoric Expedition and was a research mammalogist in Nepal (1966-1967) for the U. S. Naval Medical Research Unit No. 3 based in Cairo, Egypt, where he participated in a study of tick-borne diseases. He conducted a three-year (1970-1973) ecological survey of the Oregon Coast for the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington. He was a research ecologist with the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management for twelve years (1975-1987)--the last eight studying old-growth forests in western Oregon, and a landscape ecologist with the Environmental Protection Agency for one year (1990-1991). Today he is an independent author of some twenty books, as well as an international lecturer, facilitator in resolving environmental disputes, vision statements, and sustainable community development. He is also an international consultant in forest ecology and sustainable forestry practices. Although he has worked in Canada, Egypt, France, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Slovakia, and Switzerland, he calls Corvallis, Oregon, home.

She is also an avid student of astrology, healing, and the Ancient Wisdom as taught by her spiritual teacher, White Eagle.
