Shelf Life - Selected Books and Journals

  1. Superbia! - 31 Ways to Create Sustainable Neighborhoods: Superbia! is a book of practical ideas for creating more socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable neighborhoods. It is about remaking suburban and urban neighborhoods to serve people better and to reduce human impact on the environment. By Dan Chiras and Dave Wann (2004) ISBN: 0865714908 (Book)
  2. Terrain.org: Terrain.org, a Journal of the Built & Natural Environments, is a twice yearly online journal searching for that interface—the integration— among the built and natural environments, that might be called the soul of place. It is not definitely about urban form, nor solely about natural landscapes. It is not precisely about human culture, nor necessarily about ecology. It is, rather, a celebration of the symbiosis between the built and natural environments where it exists, and an examination and discourse where it does not. The literary, journalistic, and artistic works contained with Terrain.org are of the highest quality, submitted by a variety of contributors for a diverse audience, including some of the finest material previously appearing in Terra Nova: Nature & Culture. The works may be idealistic, technical, historical, philosophical, and more. Above all, they focus on the environments around us—the built and natural environments—that both affect and are affected by the human species. (On-Line Journal)

  5. Behaving As If The God In All Life Mattered: Machaelle Small Wright is a spiritual pioneer with the profound ability to "see" and "hear" the invisible forces of nature. Her personal story is one of triumph, from a childhood of torment and isolation to discovery of her ability to communicate with the world of nature spirits and devas. At "Perelandra," her 45-acre private nature research center in Virginia, Machaelle devotes her life to understanding and demonstrating a new approach to ecological balance: * The foundation and development of co-creative gardening * The ecological effects of humans * The roles of the animal, mineral and plant kingdoms * Humankind's unrealized custodianship of Planet Earth. A book beyond theory, Behaving as if the God in All Life Mattered will excite the minds and capture the hearts of all who dare to dream of a dynamic world of harmony and compassionate living. By Machaelle Small Wright (1997 - 3rd revised edition) ISBN: 0927978245
