Only One Earth: Living for the Future
Lloyd Timberlake (au); Gro Harlem Brundtland (fr); Robert Stone (pf). Our planet, we are told, is dying: deserts encroach on fertile land; forests vanish under axes & acid rain; soil, water & trees are squandered. Yet there are encouraging signs that people & communities worldwide are learning to use the Earth’s resources without despoiling them for future generations. This book offers dramatic examples from around the world, including a nomad in Kenya who endeavors to retain his traditional lifestyle, an Indian woman who purchases food for her neighbors in a Peruvian shantytown, & a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka who advises his villagers about tree planting. This book looks at the world through the eyes of the people who tend it, finding hope in their growing understanding of their environment. Color & B&W photos.
