solid collection of conversations about eco-philosophy had on board a restored sailboat as it sailed (mostly around) Southeast Alaska. many beautiful passages by a wide range of people including poets, ecologists, novelists, activists, even a theologian and a psychoanalyst. i read this slowly, pencil in hand. JoAnn R-C, do you happen to have a copy of this on your boat..?
