About this book

In this book, the author - regarded as one of America's greatest nature writers - offers his unique take on the fundamentalist advocates of creationism and intelligent design. Rather than combat fundamentalists with the latest research in evolutionary biology and cutting-edge astronomy, he interweaves a creative mix of memoir and intellectual critique to expose the irreligious and immoral aspects of militant creationism and, by the end, to offer instead his own worldview, an existence grounded in a reverence and respect for nature but free from religious dogma.

Living Large in Nature is articulate, courageous, and beautifully written. Philosophically, scientifically, and aesthetically informed, the book recounts and analyzes a nonfundamentalist way of seeing and being that is deeply spiritual but non-dogmatic. This is an essential cultural work, a deeply important and challenging book of our time and place. - Elizabeth Dodd, Kansas State University"
