Indies, NEVER do this. If you read this book, please make sure you are reading the updated/edited versionas of June 2014 or just buy the e-book which is the most current/final version.

If you review a draft version (the hard copy), I would appreciate it if you would note this. (Discounted price too for final hard copy draft. See my website to order. Doing a new printing in a few months so letting first run hard copies go at a lower price. Thank you).Most importantly, if you read my book at all, thank you and--STAY WILD!! The only way to stay wild is get out in it so get on...before its all gone! (Then when you get home, write a letter to your legislator, the editor, fight to save some place, take a young kid botanizing, birding).

Stay Wild and Fight for the Wild!DESCRIPTION (for a book that doesnt really fit into one all that smoothly):Only field biologists or people-of-the-field can truly understand what it is like to see a planet in decline so for birders, botanists, ecologists, field biologists, other ologists, this is a must-read.For environmental activists, active or burned out, depressed, and/or holed-up somewhere with a fifth of whiskey, this is a must-read.Think of it as a chronicle of the American environmental movement in the late 1970s/early 80s as experienced through the eyes (binoculars) and heart and soul of the main character, Ellowyn Kelsey.

Ellowyns awareness about the environment begins simply enough--mixing up a church picnic with an Audubon outing. From here, she passes through all the stages every aware person passes through, some staying in one stage, comfortably or not, and others ending in despair, hopelessness...alcohol and drugs always optional.Her journey includes leaving her boring rural life in Michigan to travel out west where she has some very unexpected experiences that includes roaming spirits in the desert, accidental crusades against development, geographically diverse sexual encounters, ascending tufas and hoodoos courtesy of a Miwok/Paiute BLM park ranger, facing the inevitable grief life offers all of us, to waking up to love--love for another human being that was second to her love for nature and birds until...The book is rich.

It is an ecological journey--ecological science is woven throughout the narrative as is Ellowyns deep emotional experience of being a human being in the modern world and struggling with the reality that when a human being falls in love with its own planet, human society doesnt seem to be able to understand this allegiance and love--a very strange paradox when you think about it: a dead planet means a dead human race.Oh yea, and its funny.Influences: Rachel Carson, Ed Abbey, Tom Robbins, Vine Deloria, Russell Means, T.C.

Boyle--see book website for ridiculous list.
