On Gandhi's path : Bob Swann's work for peace and community economics by Stephanie Mills( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bigger has turned out not to be better. Servicing the global economy has exacted a heavy toll in the erosion of our communities and the destruction of our environment. Increasingly, we are coming to realize that the way forward looks a lot like the way backback to strong local economies; back to resilient, tight-knit communities; back to the land and work that is real. As we chart our course through these uncertain times, we are hungry for inspiration. Robert Swann was a self-taught economist, a tireless champion of decentralism, and the father of the relocalization movement. A conscientious
Earth days( Visual )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This program] looks back to the dawn and development of the modern environmental movement -- from its post-war rustlings in the 1950s and the 1962 publication of Rachel Carson's incendiary bestseller 'Silent Spring' to the first wildly successful 1970 Earth Day celebration and the subsequent firestorm of political action."--Container
In service of the wild : restoring and reinhabiting damaged land by Stephanie Mills( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mills portrays a grassroots endeavor spurred by some of our most creative thinkers. She visits Nina Leopold Bradley to learn the story of the regenerating Sand County Farm. She walks restored prairie in Chicago with Steve Packard, who leads a project involving hundreds of urban volunteers in work yielding rich new lodes of botanical, zoological, and geological knowledge. She chronicles both bioregionalists in northern California struggling in chilly creeks and in heated community meetings to save their native race of salmon and visionary communitarians in South India working to "green" their 2,500 acres of blasted earth. Mills takes a hard look at what land restoration can and can't achieve. She reminds us that extinction is forever and that land development can fragment landscapes beyond repair. Yet restoration, by drawing people back to their ecosystems, takes us far beyond the easy pieties of can recycling. In Service of the Wild begins and ends on the author's home ground, thirty-five acres of farmed-out land now planted in Scotch pine monoculture. Mills imagines her northern Michigan landscape from its barren glaciated past to its climax as maplebeech hardwood forest to the ways in which logging, slash fires, and agriculture transformed the Northwoods ecology. With her trademark humor and humility, Mills invites the reader along as she learns to dig up, plant anew, and generally to assist the regenerative processes of time and nature

Testimonies : witnesses of French nuclear testing in the South Pacific( Book )

2 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is based on interview with people who have worked at Moruroa, or who live on islands near the site. It describes the effects of the nuclear test programme on their lives, and the lives of their families and friends. The interviews took place in 1987, when Dr Andy Biedermann, a Swiss doctor and crew member of the Greenpeace campaign ship Rainbow Warrior in 1985, made two trips to Polynesia, visiting Tahiti and some of the outer islands. At the end of his stay, Dr Biedermann was expelled from the territory for alleged "interference" in French defence affairs. Most of the people interviewed are Polynesian ... This is the first time many of them have spoken out about their experiences. Many fear the possibility of official repercussions, and so their names have been changed to protect them. They describe the environmental and health problems they have witnessed since the test programme began, and the effects it has wrought on their society ..." -- Introduction
On Gandhi's path : Bob Swann's work for peace and community e by Stephanie Mills( )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bigger has not turned out better. Servicing the global economy has exacted a heavy toll in the erosion of our communities and the destruction of our environment. Increasingly, we are coming to realize that the way forward looks a lot like the way back - back to strong local economies, back to resilient, tight-knit communities, back to the land and work that is real. As we chart our course through these uncertain times, we are hungry for inspiration. Robert Swann was a self-taught economist, a tireless champion of decentralism, and the father of the relocalization movement. A conscientious war resistor imprisoned for his beliefs, Bob Swann engaged in lifelong nonviolent direct action against war, racism, and economic inequity. His legacy is a vision of a life-affirming, alternative economy of peace founded on innovations in land and monetary reform. Swann forged tools to build productive, resilient local and regional economies. Now as global industrial civilization flails in the throes of ecological and economic crisis, Swann's working innovations are at the ready to help neighborhoods, local entrepreneurs, and willing communities to rebuild at appropriate scales

A road runs through it : reviving wild places( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores what many consider to be the most important issue in the re-wilding of America today-roads. Not highways, but the 500,000 miles of roads built on federal forest lands to access natural resources and then abandoned when the resources were removed." "A Road Runs Through It features a collection of essays by some of today's finest nonfiction writers: Peter Matthiessen, Barry Lopez, Janisse Ray, David Quammen, David Petersen, Stephanie Mills, William Kittredge, and two dozen others. Together, they cover all aspects of roads and their impact on the wilderness." "As all royalties from this book are being donated to Wildlands CPR, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and reviving wild places by promoting road removal and re-vegetation, this book not only educates and informs on the issues of roads-it becomes part of the solution. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
