Days of empire-building, while ignoring the needs of Mother Nature are gone. This poetry anthology pulls no punches, offering real images of nature which touch on the disturbing. But the book is also mindful of those whose hearts are heavy from the constant pounding by messages about human-caused destruction and irreversible damage to our natural environment. Presented in strikingly varied poetic styles and forms it is a must read with an important message to hold strong and not lose hope.
While best known for his educational research papers and social-environmental articles, Neil Garvie is still the boy of his childhood wandering into the bush at every opportunity to discover gooseberry patches, garter snakes and dragon flies. Join him in a quest to hear the Silence.

Neil Garvie came into the world as an explorer — a boy wandering into the bush at every opportunity to discover gooseberry patches, garter snakes and dragon flies. During these early years he learned to cherish time spent in the wild.
