We're excited to announce that William R. Jordan's ambitious and visionary book,
The Sunflower Forest: Ecological Restoration and the New Communion with Nature, first published in 2003, will soon be available on our website. For those who are interested in humanity's relationship to nature and who want to learn more about the ecological restoration environmental movement, this is the first book to read. Quantities will be very limited at first, but we're hoping a new supplier will solve that problem for us.
It may be stretching things a bit to include Jordan's book in our catalog, but the phrase "the sunflower forest" is straight out of Eiseley, one of Nebraska's noted nature writers, and on page 54 of Jordan's book, he references Eiseley, the sunflower forest, and The Invisible Pyramid.
(No, we will likely not be carrying Torey Hayden's similarly named novel The Sunflower Forest. It doesn't appear to mention Eiseley, or Nebraska, at all. The sunflower forest, in this case, is apparently in Wales.)
