Talking with Nature: Sharing the Energies and Spirit of Trees, Plants, Birds, and Earth

Michael J. Roads, Author, George Trevelyan, Foreword by H.J. Kramer $12.95 (154p) ISBN 978-0-915811-06-9
Roads, a ""naturist,'' literally talks to nature. He shouts to the trees and to the nearby river, and they answer him, at least in his mind. He tells stories of reasoning with predators in his native Australia, of asking them not to ruin his pasture grass. And miraculously they comply. According to the author, his gift for communicating with nature derives from the fact that in a previous life he was a gifted botanist who was ridiculed and died because of his gift for communicating with the birds and the bees. He questions many things: Why do people talk with pets but not with the trees on their front lawn? Why do people kill wild animals, which have an equal right to live on earth? This story can be read on many levels, and few will question the author's sincerity. (September)
