“Carol Lee Flinders explores the roots of the conflict between our desire for independence and achievement and our longing for community. In offering crucial insights into how to reconcile these two radically different ways of being in the world and acknowledge our precious connection to the land and our responsibilities to each other, she provides a valuable blueprint for the future of modern society.” (Toinette Lippe, author of Nothing Left Over: A Plain and Simple Life)
