Rooted: The Hidden Places Where God Develops You
About this deal
How does anyone get through a week without communing with nature? A glimpse of flowering tree or autumnal glow of color across the grass? The raucous call of the Blue Jay or the hoot of an owl in the night? Deepen your connection to the natural world with this inspiring meditation, "a path to the place where science and spirit meet" (Robin Wall Kimmerer).
Rooted feels like a literary love child of Rachel Carson and Mary Oliver. Find yourself a quiet place, preferably under a tree, and let Lyanda Lynn Haupt teach you how to embrace the ‘tangled empathy’ of living not as a dominant species, but as one of many.” —Erica Bauermeister, author of The Scent Keeper Subsequent DNA testing of Alex Haley's nephew Chris Haley revealed that Alec Haley, Alex's paternal grandfather and Queen Haley's husband, was most likely descended from Scottish ancestors via William Harwell Baugh, an overseer of an Alabama slave plantation.   Related scholarship [ edit ] The 1988 comedy film Coming to America jokingly references Kunta Kinte, in an homage to Roots (John Amos, who played a supporting role in Coming to America as the father of the protagonist's love interest, played the adult version of Kunta Kinte in the 1977 miniseries). Main articles: Roots (1977 miniseries), Roots: The Next Generations, Roots: The Gift, and Roots (2016 miniseries) The author and her husband conclude that organic farming is the niche to explore for them not just because it seems the only way small, non-agribusiness farming can be financially viable but it is the path farmers need to follow after years of being pushed to produce more and more food via chemicals and farming methods alien to their ancestors. Regenesis conveys a sense of urgency about these challenges, and has a huge scope. Monbiot thinks globally, looking beyond these shores to poorer nations that feel the impact of climate changes and the economic pressures most keenly.
Se parece mucho a una conversación con una buena amiga, pero una amiga peculiar (en el buen sentido de la palabra). Una de esas amigas que son sensibles a la naturaleza, que se sienten conectadas con ella, que buscan frecuentemente participar de su presencia física, y que respetan y protegen el entorno valorándolo como lo más sagrado que nos ha dado la vida. Esta buena amiga, que además tiene gran facilidad para la palabra y sabe transformar lo pragmático en hermoso, sin perder su significado por el camino, comparte de la forma más fiel posible aquellos pensamientos que están conectados directamente con su filosofía de vida y que solo le dedicaría a un buen amigo con el que hay plena confianza. Por tanto, este libro es un regalo de confianza, de sinceridad y también de amor. A completely charming and informative book on the pleasures of keeping one’s eyes open.” -David Sedaris Moving, startling, uplifting, galvanising and unsettling, this plainly beautiful book is one of those rare few that changes how you see the world around you' - Ella Risbridger, author of The Year of MiraclesMy only gripe with this book was the way Haupt wrote. In some ways, her flowery language helped to capture the opulence of what she was trying to say about nature and her experiences. In other ways, it just made her book a little hard to follow within giving it my full and hardworking attention. Despite that, I feel like it didn’t take away from the meaning of the book nor from the overall message. In Rooted , cutting-edge science supports a truth that poets, artists, mystics, and earth-based cultures across the world have proclaimed over life on this planet is radically interconnected. Our bodies, thoughts, minds, and spirits are affected by the whole of nature, and they affect this whole in return. In this time of crisis, how can we best live upon our imperiled, beloved earth?
