A beautifully written manifesto for our complex time, Rooted inspires readers to deepen their connection with nature in unexpected ways, and to act powerfully on the earth’s behalf.

In Rooted, cutting-edge science supports a truth that poets, artists, mystics, and earth-based cultures across the world have proclaimed over millennia: life on this planet is radically interconnected. Our bodies, thoughts, minds, and spirits are affected by the whole of nature, and affect this whole in return. In this time of crisis, how can we best live upon our imperiled, beloved earth?
 
Award-winning writer Lyanda Lynn Haupt’s highly personal new book is a brilliant invitation to live with the earth in both simple and profound ways–from walking barefoot in the woods and reimagining our relationship with animals and trees, to examining the very language we use to describe and think about nature. She invokes rootedness as a way of being in concert with the wilderness–and wildness–that sustains humans and all of life.

In the tradition of Rachel Carson, Elizabeth Kolbert, and Mary Oliver, Haupt writes with urgency and grace, reminding us that at the crossroads of science, nature, and spirit we find true hope. Each chapter provides tools for bringing our own unique gifts to the fore, and transforming our sense of belonging within the magic and wonder of the natural world.
