In an exploration of the web of life that unites all living things, David Suzuki and Amanda McConnell offer photographs, reproductions of artwork and electron micrographs and satellite photographs - all celebrating that connection. Suzuki identifies seven element - earth, air, fire, water, biodiversity, love and spirituality - which all human beings need to lead full, rich lives. The exquisite balance of these elements creates and maintains the web of life on Earth. We too are part of that web; like all living things, we are the sacred elements. We are made from and sustained by earth and air, fire and water. We are part of the totality of biological diversity that maintains the planet's life support systems. We are held together by love, and we express and celebrate our understanding of our place on Earth through the mysteries of the spirit. Through images, text and quotations from literature, poetry, myths and other sources, this book provides an uplifting expression of the sacred balance that is life.Read Less
