What will the United States of America feel like at the turn of the 22nd century, when climate change and our proactive responses to it have radically changed the way that we live? What does it mean to live in a future that is decolonizing itself, in an era of healing the wounds that capitalism has left behind?

Into this time were born two siblings, from different

This is a deep & creative rewrite of an Irish myth with inspiring, rematriating, ecotopian vision so needed in today's world. While grounded in Abenaki territory with healing world values guiding the story, this book offers an engaging read that stimulates the imagination, reminds us of possibilities, facilitates many levels of analysis, and encourages active awareness.

Read this book if you are, or want to be a time traveler. Read this book if you are dispirited, but remain curious about the future. Read this book if you don’t want to slog through the day to day decisions, choices, news briefs and tweets of our world in flux. Don’t worry, you’ll have a map - a holographic one that tells you where you are, and how you got here. The author has jumped through time, and landed us squarely in a moment beyond now. The inevitable disorientation of opening your eyes ...more

I just finished reading this engaging and thought-provoking book from M.Z. O'Coill, and am glad that I did. The book is set in a post-capitalist, de-industrialized Vermont (renamed Dawn Land in reference to the indigenous Abenaki name for the area), where folks are learning to live in cooperative, land-based communities and are actively working on decolonization. That's not to say that it is a utopia - there is still climate chaos, political violence, greed and hubris at play in this ...more

I was spellbound reading Miach & Airmed which surprised me because I don't usually get swept up by books that feel like they have an explicit message or an agenda. So, yes, this book is unabashedly political, but it is so deeply thoughtful, so well researched, so darn well written and so compelling in its vision that I couldn't put it down. There is also the added bonus that O'Coill's vision is one of hope that the direction which we are hurtling in will bring us to such a crisis of ...more

This is a fabulous work. It's a gripping page-turner that beckons you to lose yourself in it, and leaves you feeling uplifted and more alive at the end of it. But more, O'Coill begins the book with a heartfelt direct appeal to the reader, explaining their motivations for writing and revealing some of the book's political goals. This introduction is an insightful work of philosophy in itself, and deepens the reading experience considerably. I recommend this book wholeheartedly!

This is a book I will read over and over again. It is inspiring, fun, challenging, and sad all at once. Read if you are a lover of plants, lore, music, poetry, or if you are curious to be awakened to one of the many possibilities dreamed up for the future of humanity. I look forward to revisiting this book and sharing it with my loved ones.

This book is inspirational, as it illustrates a beautiful future for humans in a post-fossil fuel, reparation-making society. In addition to being an enjoyable novel for anyone to read, it could be used in the classroom for all sorts of environmental study students.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. It offers a very refreshing (and much needed, in my opinion) alternative to the dystopian future books out there currently. Mixing folklore, myth, and ancient healing traditions, the author weaves a deeply imaginative, creative and thoughtful story that will no doubt inspire the reader to forge a powerful future that reconnects us to the Land and our ancestors. Thank you so much for this book as it has deep relevance to the times we are in and ...more
