Recommended Reading

Of all the books we've read this year, Soil and Soul by Alistair McIntosh has probably been one of the most impactful and inspirational. We found it in the Skara Brae giftshop on the Orkney Isles. It provides what might be called an alternative theological and ecological history of Scotland, and details two major activist victories of recent decades: the purchase of the Isle of Eigg by its residents from their Laird, and the saving of a mountain from total destruction by a megaquarry project, thanks to the help of a Mi'kmaq Warrior Chief and Peace Pipe Carrier.

This is recommended reading for anyone who cares about the planet or its inhabitants.
