My Story as Told by Water PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

My Story as Told by Water free pdf In this remarkable collection of essays, David James Duncan, award-winning author of The River Why, braids his contemplative, activist, and rhapsodic voices together into a potently distinctive whole, speaking with power and urgency about the vital connections between our water-filled bodies and this water-covered planet. The twenty-two essays in this collection swirl and eddy around the author's early-forged bond with the rivers of the Pacific Northwest and their endangered native salmon. With a bracing blend of story, logic, science, and humor, Duncan relates mystical, life-changing fishing adventures- draws incisive portraits of the humans and wild creatures who shaped his destiny- attacks the corporate greed and political folly that have brought whole ecosystems to ruin- and meditates on the spiritual and practical necessity of acknowledging our dependence on water in its primal state.
