Description: ldquo;Derrick Jensen is a rare and original voice of sanity in a chaotic world. He has wisdom and wit, grace and style, and is a wonderful guide to a good life beautifully lived.rdquo;-Howard ZinnWhat We Leave Behind is a piercing, impassioned guide to living a truly responsible life on earth. Human waste, once considered a gift to the soil, has become toxic material that has broken the essential cycle of decay and regeneration. Here, award-winning writer Derrick Jensen and activist Aric McBay weave historical analysis and devastatingly beautiful prose to remind us that life-human and nonhuman-will not go on unless we do everything we can to facilitate the most basic process on earth, the root of sustainability: one beingrsquo;s waste must always become another beingrsquo;s food.Activist, philosopher, teacher, and leading voice of uncompromising dissent, Derrick Jensen holds degrees in creative writing and mineral engineering physics. His books include Endgame, volumes 1 and 2; As the World Burns , with Stephanie McMillan; A Language Older Than Words ; and The Culture of Make Believe .Aric McBay is a writer, activist, and small-scale organic farmer who works to share information about community sufficiency and off-the-grid skills. He is the author of Peak Oil Survival: Preparation for Life after Gridcrash and creator of ldquo;In the Wake: A Collective Manual-in-progress for Outliving Civilizationrdquo; (www.inthewake.org).
