Editorial Reviews

Each of the elegant poems inNature Speaks provide a thoughtful pathway through the dense forest of cultural and ecological challenges we face as a species. Deborah Kennedy shows us how to artistically navigate our way with her beauty-making of words and images as we strive to live in harmony with Nature in these most critical of times. Stunning!?Osprey Orielle Lake, sculptor, founder and president of Women's Earth and Climate Caucus, author ofUprisings for the Earth: Reconnecting Culture with NatureNature Speaks offers us the vast and infinite world, our history, our earth, both gorgeous and dying. To read Deborah Kennedy'sNature Speaks is like waking up from a dream to find that someone around us is wide awake. 'What hole is deep enough to throw away the whole world?' the author asks in a searing poem, followed by a rich, echoing drawing. The art following each poem has a science illustrator's detail and a visionary artist's dream. In this work we find Enlightenment women, hawk moths, ancient goddesses, acorns, millions of prairie bison, melting sea ice, watersheds, pollinators, mass extinctions, plastics, breast milk, the solar system, egrets, turtle eggs, ancient footprints, tule grass, redwoods.Nature Speaks looks at the whole beautiful world, and refuses to look away from its suffering. 'Dare to think,' we are reminded, and after reading this book, we do.? Carolyn Brigit Flynn, author ofCommunion: Poems in Praise of the Sacred Earth
