Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
How we relate to the land and its living creatures is literally a question of life and death in this age of alienation from the natural world. For those with a strong connection, says this deeply sensitive naturalist, "the passion that we feel is naturally translated to a politics of place - standing our ground in the places that we love." Environmental politics becomes a matter of sensual passion rather than political correctness in this rich, colorful mosaic of thoughts on wildness, landscape, animals, and humans. It sparkles with gems of insight mined from Williams' own profound sense of belonging in nature and includes the voice of the late Edward Abbey, maverick environmentalist and friend of Williams, in a short audio excerpt from the New Dimensions archives.
