This is a book about growing up and growing older while playing a small part in Trying to Save the World. It’s one Everywoman’s journey from civil rights to feminism to environmental activism. From Radical Therapy to Compassionate Communication. From feminist spirituality to Buddhist Peace Training. From wilderness community to permaculture and the Transition movement for local sustainability. Set among a circle of friends living in a California village of backyard creeks and campfires, this is a story of thinking globally and acting locally and doing good while having fun.
