On every page of these very different books lie warnings about what happens when we ignore the interconnectivity of man and nature, trees and air, the rhythms of our bodies and the patterns of our thoughts. Narrow ambition is mostly catastrophic. An incapacity for awe is inhumane. A trampling of others as we advance ourselves will have unbearable, forseeable consequences. The future of us depends on looking close, and listening well.
It's a political season. Let natural history be our guide.
