The piece by Ted Wilson is outstanding, thought provoking and touching. It is spot on what I had hoped to find here. A few others are okay. Some are quite awful. I am afraid that this book points out the difficulty in finding prominent Mormons who are actually concerned about the environment despite what should be a premier understanding of our environmental stewardship.

An excellent collection of essays by local (mostly utah) authors. They are essays that I strongly relate to in my never ending quest to better fullfil my spiritural duties to be a good steward of the earth! Everyone should read this, member of the church or not!

Overall I gave it a three star. This book is a collection of essays about the role of nature and the environment tied to Mormon theology. Some essays I would rank as five star essays whereas others only one.
