Published by Milkweed Editions

From the Adirondack Mountains to Kerala, India, to Curitiba, Brazil, McKibben offers clear-eyed and profoundly compelling portraits of places where resourceful people have confronted modern problems with inventive solutions, and thrived in the process. With an afterword by the author updating developments in the decade since the book was first published, this new edition offers a badly needed vision of optimism for the future of our planet.
