Listening at Outlook Creek
Nature in Spiritual Practice
Listening at Lookout Creek recounts the author’s attempt to reconnect with nature at the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest in Oregon and back home at her family’s cabin in northwest Michigan’s Manistee National Forest. Weaving philosophical and spiritual interpretations of the natural world with personal, hands-on experiences of particular landed places, it will be of interest to students of environmental ethics and religion, conservationists, hunting and fishing enthusiasts, and those who work to connect children with nature.
