The indigenous imperative to honor nature is undermined by federal laws approving resource extraction through mining and drilling. Formal protections exist for Native American religious expression, but not for the places and natural resources integral to ceremonies. Under what conditions can traditional beliefs be best practiced? Recovering the Sacred features a wealth of native research and hundreds of interviews with indigenous scholars and activists. Winona LaDuke was named by Time in 1994 as one of America's fifty most promising leaders under forty. In 1996 and 2000, LaDuke served as Ralph Nader's vice presidential running mate in the Green Party.

Kakuzo Okakuras 'Buch vom Tee', 1906 erstmals erschienen, ist nicht nur eine zarte poetische Hinführung zum Zeremoniell des Teegenusses, sondern gewährt erhellende Einblicke in die Geheimnisse japanischer Kultur. In sieben Kapiteln erzählt es von der engen Verbundenheit des Teekultes mit Taoismus und Zen-Lehre, schildert seinen Einfluss auf Architektur und Kunst, besonders auf die Blumensteckkunst Ikebana, und verdeutlicht, wie tief die rituelle Teebereitung im japanischen Lebensgefühl verwurzelt ist.
