With land-related ailments, such as soil erosion and loss of wildlife habitat, quickly growing into a major global threat, simply adopting a more environment-friendly lifestyle or disconnecting from the grid and living off the land are no longer adequate solutions. Affecting change at the level of individual behavior is just too difficult and would take much too long. This book suggests a middle course based on sound cultural values that provide a new way of viewing and valuing land. This middle course recognizes man's interdependence with nature and each other, focusing on the social and cultural roots rather than just the visible symptoms of the problem.

Keywords:   land use, land-related ailments, soil erosion, wildlife habitat, cultural values, environment
