The Great Remembering: Further Thoughts On Land, Soul, and Society
The Great Remembering is an activist's exploration of what land means to our culture. In three essays, "The Extinction of Experience," "Dissent and Defiance," and "Building a New Commons," Peter Forbes traces the roots of our disconnection from place, and from meaningful stories about our lives. He discusses what he terms the "ethics of enough"-the growing trend to slow down and place the quality of our experiences over the quantity of our possessions. It is through preserving our land and rebuilding the relationship between land and people, he argues, that our culture can not only restore natural habitats, but revitalize the human communities as well.
