Description: In eloquent language and stories, members of the LDS faith relate personal experiences with the natural world. Drawing on scripture and Mormon tradition, they tell of peaceful times and of times in nature that changed their lives, as well as current conflicts over the use of public lands in the West. These essays of inspiration and courage illuminate the spiritual qualities inherent in the land. The editors offer this unprecedented volume of Mormon environmental thought to the growing ecological consciousness of religion’s responsibility toward the earth.
