“Few non-native people understand the sacred ancient connection indigenous people have with Mother Earth better than Gleb Raygorodetsky. Here in the inimitable clarity and style for which we know him from his National Geographic Voices blog, Gleb takes us to every inhabited continent, to meet and converse with people who are witnessing the impact of climate change on ecosystems they have related with for countless generations. For them there is no need of abstract scientific data to show there is a real disturbance in our planet’s life-giving force. Yet it is in these same forgotten corners of the world that Gleb also finds traditional knowledge of our planetary organism may well be our species’ ultimate lifeline.”
