Essays that Remind Us How We are All Connected
This powerful collection of words from award-winning journalist Richard Louv examines the interconnections among people—with each chapter revealing the delicate strands of life that weave us all together.
Touching on the simple truths. It’s often the little things that remind us how connected we all are to one another. Through his insightful reflections, Louv reveals the many places we can find the strands that bind us to one another, and he explores where we can find these strands in our lives—from family and friendship to community and nature. Most importantly, his words remind us of the importance of seeking out these strands in our own lives.
The great web of life. In this collection of inspirational stories, discussion, and quotations, Louv paints a picture for us of the great web of life.

As we discover how we are all connected, we also learn how it is our responsibility to care for each other and the world around us.
