<author of the novel Power (W.W. Norton, 1998) and Dwellings: A Spiritual History of the Living World (Touchstone, 1996)>
I write for the future, especially for the future of indigenous peoples and our children and grandchildren. And yet, there is so much more than the printed word that needs to be carried into that sometimes hopeful, sometimes hopeless place called the future. I hope that what we carry there is larger than books, stronger than words. I want to take along a world of animals whose spirits sustain ours, plants that breathe for us, and all the elements whose lives we live by. I don't mean to diminish the power of the printed word, the significance of books. I believe in their ability to create change, to heal hearts, and to make people laugh or weep. I just look forward and see the broken world we are leaving to the future and somehow our books seem small in such a context. So here's to the trees from which these pages come.
