The Green Boat : Reviving Ourselves in Our Capsized Culture,  Mary Pipher

Mary Pipher, clinical psychologist, is exploring how to conquer our fears about the major environmental issues that confound us and transform them into a positive force in our lives. She emphasizes the importance of taking small, positive steps to preserve what’s important, drawing from her own experiences as part of a group fighting energy company TransCanada’s installation of the Keystone XL oil pipeline across the Midwest, which will sit atop the Ogallala Aquifer, the source of 40% of the United States’ fresh water.

The challenges she confronts reveal surprising answers to the critical questions: How do we mobilize ourselves and our communities to work together to solve global problems? How do we stay happy amid very difficult situations? And what is the true meaning of hope? The Green Boat explains how we can change the world with calmness, balance, and goodwill.
