Description - Writing from the Center by Scott Russell Sanders

"...essays of substance and beauty, and they belong beside the work of Annie Dillard, Samuel Pickering, and Wendell Berry." -Library Journal "[Sanders] eloquently expresses his love of the land and the responsibility he feels for preventing further erosion of our natural resources..." -Publishers Weekly "Skillfully written in a clear, unmannered style refreshingly devoid of irony and hollow cleverness, the author starts with everyday experiences and gleans from them larger truths." -The Christian Science Monitor "[These] essays are so good one is tempted to stand up and applaud after reading them...Sanders is a modern day prospector who finds gems of spiritual meaning in both familiar and unusual places." -Body Mind Spirit Writing from the Center is about one very fine writer's quest for a meaningful and moral life. Lannan Literary Award winner Scott Sanders (Secrets of the Universe, Staying Put, A Paradise of Bombs) seeks and describes a center that is geographical, emotional, artistic, and spiritual-and is rooted in place. The geography is midwestern, the impulses are universal. "The earth needs fewer tourists and more inhabitants, it seems to me-fewer people who float about in bubbles of money and more people committed to knowing and tending their home ground." -Scott Russell Sanders, from the book
