Deffenbaugh calls us to live in a reciprocal relationship with our biotic communities-the plants, animals, and other non-human cultures that share our world. By rerooting our global lifestyles in the ecological knowledge of our homes, we may truly begin to mend the health of our planet. Deffenbaugh marries Christian theology and spiritual disciplines with Native American mythology and organic gardening to deepen our engagement with the places in which we live.
