    DescriptionIn this collection of interviews, Derrick Jensen discusses the destructive dominant culture with ten people who have devoted their lives to undermining it. Whether it is Carolyn Raffensperger and her radical approach to public health, or Thomas Berry on perceiving the sacred; be it Kathleen Dean Moore reminding us that our bodies are made of mountains, rivers, and sunlight; or Vine Deloria asserting that our dreams tell us more about the world than science ever can, the activists and philosophers interviewed in How Shall I Live My Life? each bravely present a few of the endless forms that resistance can and must take.

    Review quote
    "Derrick Jensen is in search [of] solutions to these times of despair with interviews of amazing authors, philosophers, activists, and environmentalists. . . . It drives home deeply that there is a serious crisis modern civilization is facing but does allow for hope and a solution." --"Razorcake" (July 30, 2011)
