Summary
"John Nichols was raised among naturalists and nurtured by a family as American as the Stars and Stripes. His great (times five) grandfather signed the Declaration of Independence for New York State. Nichols sailed happily through a top-notch private school education and sold his first novel, The Sterile Cuckoo, a best-seller, at age twenty-three. He considered himself "a child blessed by the culture and fated for delirious success." But then a short trip to Guatemala derailed his life, setting him on a very different path toward radical social and environmental commitment. This book describes a rich and often tormented journey out of a safe middle-class existence toward belief in what Nichols calls "a liberation ecology.""--Jacket
