This book is about hopeful daydreams and their implications for action in the interwoven spheres of culture, environment, and education. In spite and because of the recent significant shift in concern for the environment around the globe, there remains the urgent task of restorying the ways we live on this earth. This collection works across various fields of green, drawing together poetry, philosophy, journalism, sociology, curriculum studies, Indigenous scholarship, feminist and social justice work, environmental ethics, and a range of other fields of inquiry and practice. Individually and cumulatively, the contributors seach for, theorize, and practice approaches that probe education as an endeavor that imperfectly, yet hopefully, walks the blurred line between cultural determinism and resistance. This is a delicious volume that joins daydreams and nightmares; composting liberatory education and interrogating environmental crises; where theory and affect snuggle; poetry and critical theory embrace; where flowers grow among trauma. In this volume the notion of a filed grows rich, colorful, and generative; refusing to be disciplined, constrained, and bounded. What a relief - Michelle Fine, The Graduate Center at the City University of New York. Here is a luminous anthology of insights and dreams from many of the liveliest thinkers in environmental education - a necessary compendium of tools, both poetic and practical, for the transformation of culture - David Abraham, author of The Spell of the Sensuous. This is a must read book that helps us to find our own story for animating ecological and social justice in and through education - Marie Battiste University of Saskatchewan The issues raised by these timely - and urgent- essays speak to both the historical moment and the future life on this planet. This is an important book and I highly recommend it - Peter McLaren University of California Los Angeles
