World-renowned canopy biologist Nalini Nadkarni has climbed trees on four continents with scientists, students, artists, clergymen, musicians, activists, loggers, legislators, and Inuits, gathering diverse perspectives. In Between Earth and Sky, a rich tapestry of personal stories, information, art, and photography, she becomes our captivating guide to the leafy wilderness above our heads. Through her luminous narrative, we embark on a multifaceted exploration of trees that illuminates the profound connections we have with them, the dazzling array of goods and services they provide, and the powerful lessons they hold for us. Nadkarni describes trees' intricate root systems, their highly evolved and still not completely understood canopies, their role in commerce and medicine, their existence in city centers and in extreme habitats of mountaintops and deserts, and their important place in folklore and the arts. She explains tree fundamentals and considers the symbolic role they have assumed in culture and religion. In a book that reawakens our sense of wonder at the fascinating world of trees, we ultimately find entry to the entire natural world and rediscover our own place in it.

Years of teaching have allowed the author to observe that we all have the power to be creative. He lays out the experiential process of being creative, from early influences, through the evolutionary development of ideas and forms, and, finally, to the reality of multiple expressions."--Provided by publisher.

Internationally renowned performance and visual artist GEOFFREY HENDRICKS created "Sky Boots, his first sky piece, shortly after his first visit to Cape Breton Island in 1964. Since, then he has used the isolated coastline of his Cape Breton home as a lens through which to explore his deep connection to place and history. The result is the impressive and multifaceted body of work in the exhibition "Between Earth & Sky (in knowing one, one will know the other): Geoffrey Hendricks. In her catalogue essay, curator SHAUNA McCABE traces Hendricks's interest in combining sky imagery with unexpected art forms to his involvement in the New York-based Fluxus movement of the early 1960s. Spearheaded by avant-garde artists such as Yoko Ono, Fluxus presumes that all media and artistic disciplines can be combined and fused. Hendricks, a key player in contemporary art, has always achieved an extraordinary balance of the regional and the personal with his work's international and universalist underpinnings. The catalogue of this ground-breaking retrospective exhibition features an essay by noted curator WAYNE BAERWALDT; SHAUNA McCABE's essay; and the artist's own chronology, reflecting on his experiences of the Cape Breton landscape.
