Listening at Outlook Creek

Nature in Spiritual Practice

Oregon State University Press

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.


Gretel Van Wieren is associate professor of religious studies at Michigan State University where her courses focus on religion, ethics, and the environment.  She is author of the books Food, Farming and Religion and Restored to Earth, as well as numerous journal articles. She received her PhD in Religious Studies from Yale University.
