Based on the authors' best-selling book The Sacred Balance: Rediscovering Our Place in Nature, this visual feast celebrates the forces that unite all living things, in spectacular photographs, beautiful reproductions of artwork, and amazing electron micrographs and satellite photographs. These images by Galen Rowell, Art Wolfe, and others lovingly explore dewdrops on a spider web, a field full of wildflowers, vast herds of zebra, rock paintings, Inuit artwork, and much more. The accompanying text presents David Suzuki's inspiring view of the human place on Earth, drawn from his life as a scientist, environmentalist, writer, and thinker. He describes the seven elements earth, air, fire, water, biodiversity, love, and spirituality that all human beings need to lead full, rich lives. The exquisite balance of these elements creates and maintains the web of life on Earth. Included are quotations from literary texts and poetry, observations from scientists, retellings of myths, and lines from songs and psalms.
