Beloved and critically acclaimed author Lin Jensen returns with this bounteous volume exploring what the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins calls “deep down things.” Richly informed by deep ecology, Lin’s writing explores our intimate connection to the land, to the specificities of place, and to the living earth itself-all as Lin uncovers our own deepest nature, the true heart of what it means to be human. There is much in what’s happening in our environment now that can and perhaps should be cause for dismay—and Deep Down Things looks squarely at all of this and nonetheless gives us ample cause for celebration.
Deep Down Things
The Earth in Celebration and Dismay
