Publisher's Summary

This collection of nine performance pieces by naturalists is inspired by the words of Margaret Mead, who said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful individuals can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." Together, these individuals provide a diverse story that memorializes the diversity, beauty, and fragility of our planet.
Poet Terry Temptest Williams talks about the peregrine falcon; Larry Cox of the Rainforest Foundation talks about the rainforests; poet Diane Ackerman reads from her The Whale in Moonlight; scientist Dr. David Suzuki lectures on a sense of place; muralist Wyland talks about whales and art; urban environmentalist Gerald Lordhal talks about community gardens in New York City; author Peter Matthiessen reads from his Sand Rivers; biologist Sharon Matola talks about the Belize Zoo; and nine-year-old Annie Olson talks about her two little friends.
Full list of narrators includes Terry Tempest Williams, Larry Cox, and Annie Olson.
