*** This is a new, never read book. It has a few blemishes such as a crease or edge-wear on the cover, remainder mark, but it is still crisp and new on the inside and it makes for a great reading copy. ***
With thoughtful attention given to the entire cycle of human life, Bill Plotkin's guide helps readers create a more fulfilling existence through attunement to nature. At once a parenting primer and a model for self-improvement, "Nature and the Human Soul" illustrates how great changes in personal culture can be had when people allow themselves and their children to fully engage with the world. The book creates and defines five stages of a human life -- Innocent, Explorer, Societal Entrepreneur and Wanderer, Soul Apprentice and Artisan, and Master and Sage -- and offers insight as to how readers can realize their greatest potential, whatever stage they may be in. Told in meditative prose and featuring many moving anecdotes, this book truly builds a template for a more holistic and engaged life through the connection to nature many have been missing.
