Turtle Island Cover Image
$14.95
ISBN: 9780811205467
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: New Directions Publishing Corporation - January 17th, 1974

Turtle Island won Gary Snyder the Pulitzer back in 1975, and remains, to this observer, his most completely realized work. The title comes from a Native American term for the continent of North America, and Snyder wants to reclaim the organic and holistic environmental harmony that once held sway here. Still, this is poetry, not diatribe. Snyder's key virtue isn't his political or philosophical vision, but his poetic articulation of that vision. Excellent.

The Bedside Manifesto Cover Image
$5.99
ISBN: 9781480095793
Availability: Available Now
Published: CreateSpace - March 3rd, 2013

A convalescing friend told Dr. Jeff Kane, “When I was in the hospital, I was poked and probed and ultraviolated, but never touched.” The thousands of stories Dr. Kane has heard from patients and their families over the past forty years emphasize one particular theme: while appreciating medicine’s awesome technology, people yearn for low-tech contact. They want their suffering treated as well as their illness, but as technology ascended, the tangibly therapeutic “bedside manner” slowly faded into the shadows. Dr. Kane makes the case that our current “healthcare crisis” isn’t fundamentally economic, then, but social. We overuse expensive, invasive, and often hazardous technology where skilled doctor-patient contact would often accomplish more.
