A diverse array of authors—psychologists and poets, biologists and artists, a Buddhist teacher—share personal stories that reveal a common theme: when we pay conscious, careful attention to our wider world, we strengthen our core humanity. This book declares that nurturing a love for our planet is essential in this time of turbulence and change. 

Thomas Lowe Fleischner, editor of Nature, Love, Medicine, is a naturalist and conservation biologist, and founding director of the Natural History Institute at Prescott College, where he has taught interdisciplinary environmental studies for almost three decades. He edited The Way of Natural History and authored Singing Stone: A Natural History of the Escalante Canyons and Desert Wetlands.

Saul Weisberg is a poet, naturalist, educator and executive director of North Cascades Institute. He has worked throughout the Northwest as a wilderness climbing ranger, field biologist, commercial fisherman and fire lookout. Saul is author of North Cascades: The Story Behind the Scenery, From the Mountains to the Sea: A Guide to the Skagit River Watershed and Headwaters: Poems 7 Field Notes. He lives with his wife, Shelley, in Bellingham, Washington, near the shores of the Salish Sea.

She has also worked as an educator, environmental advocate, and national park ranger.
