If you are looking for further knowledge on the necessity of indigenized environmental justice, or to just better yourself overall as an environmentalist within the so-called United States, look no further. This book changed my life and changed the way I view environmentalism.
As a lover of photography, music, and the New York punk scene of the 60's and 70's, this book was made for me. Patti Smith's poeticism seeps into every aspect of her storytelling - I could read her words on Robert Mapplethorpe and love and loss over and over. As Joan Didion said on the front flap of this copy, "This book is so honest and pure as to count as a true rapture."
Required reading for punk music lovers (in my measly opinion). Do not read if you want to maintain respect for David Bowie!
David Lynch is one of my favorite artists of all time, and this peek into his life (and brain) was an absolute joy. Bouncing between biography and autobiography, the interplay between McKenna and Lynch never falters. I didn't want this book to end.
