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.

In the forest, the earth and sky do not meet; the notion of 'horizon' doesn't exist. Forests have been cleared to open new horizons but this has often been responsible for the destruction of the living world within. Between the Earth and the Sky brings together forest writings that cover history, anthropology, wildlife, ecological and environmental studies, literature and travel, throwing light on different aspects of the forest. While Jim Corbett sees the forest as a hunter and Prakash Moorthy weaves a tale about poaching in Kerala, Visvajit Pandya writes about the Ongees of Little Andaman. Guru Nanak celebrates the seasons in his Bara Maha and Sri Aurobindo celebrates the forest as the 'Infinite Mother' in Savitri, while Verrier Elwin and Ruskin Bond celebrate the intimacy man shares with nature. The Yaksha Prashna from the Mahabharata and Ramchandra Gandhi's Sita's Kitchen explore the forest as a space for discourse even as Gilgamesh, one of the earliest conquerors of the forest, stands in sharp contrast with its caretakers like Kotgudin and Billy Biswas.

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.
