A stunning exploration of the web of life that unites all living things. Based on David Suzuki and Amanda McConnell's best-selling "The Sacred Balance: Rediscovering Our Place in Nature", a textual exploration of the web of life that unites all living things, this visual feast celebrates that connection in spectacular photographs, beautiful reproductions of artwork, and stunning electronmicrographs and satellite photographs. These images include photographs of dewdrops on a spider web, the Earth from space at night, a field full of wildflowers, vast herds of zebra, Inuit artwork, and more. The accompanying text presents David Suzuki's idiosyncratic, bold, and inspiring view of the human place on Earth, drawn from his life as a scientist, environmentalist, writer, and thinker. He identifies seven elements--earth, air, fire, water, biodiversity, love, and spirituality--which all human beings need to lead full, rich lives. The exquisite balance of these elements creates and maintains the web of life on Earth. We too are part of that web: like all living things, we are the sacred elements. We are made from and sustained by earth and air, fire and water. We are part of the totality of biological diversity that maintains the planet's life support systems.
