Dark Cloud Country: The 4 Relationships on Regeneration
From Next Generation Book awardee Daniel Firth Griffith erupts a groundbreaking collection about the WILDING of the regenerative agriculture movement.
Part mystical stories and poems where trees talk and briars walk, part lyrical studies of mathematics and art, Dark Cloud Country is a pioneering portrait of the WILD in and around us.
In Dark Cloud Country, Griffith debuts a new paradigm for WILDING-what he calls the Four Relationships: chaos, bounds, art, and singularity. Instead of offering us regenerative practices, Griffith's Four Relationships invites us to open our minds to transform the way we think so that our community with Mother Earth becomes elevated from dominance to reciprocity-a journey that begins by dropping your shears and opening your ears; one that begins by taking off your shoes. Here, in the sacred and reawakening heart of the wild, a love story of Creation emerges and a mythology centered around the singularity of spirit and matter, of the human heart and the heart of the world, transforms our once drought-stricken dirt into rain-stained magnificence. "Regeneration, if it is about anything at all, is about getting off your bum and dancing until the rains come," writes Griffith.
