An inspiring meditation on the intersection of science, nature, and spirit that shows readers how to deepen their connection to the natural world.

Science. Nature. Spirit. They do not, need not, and should not overlap completely. But at that center, where they do intersect? At that crossroads there is intelligence, and sacredness, and wildness, and grace. There is clear‑sighted hope in a time of despair. There is resistance. There is joy.
In this beautiful, thoughtful, and inspiring book, ecophilosopher, naturalist, and award‑winning author Lyanda Lynn Haupt offers serious invitation to ecological consciousness and action — a swift and beautiful manual inspiring readers to stand in a new way for the natural world. With Haupt's own changing and growing perceptions as a life‑long student of nature as a through‑line, ROOTED offers an antidote to the plagues of modern life based in science, spirituality, and nature.
In this mystifying time of climate upheaval that affects the earth so dramatically, people are afraid and uncertain of where to turn, where to direct their inborn love of nature. ROOTED delivers much‑needed solace while inspiring readers to engage with the wild earth in new ways. The intertwining of science, nature, and spirit shows readers how to get grounded and move forward on our beloved, imperiled world.
