Anne Rowthorn has written and compiled 11 books on diverse topics, but ecological spirituality has become her specialty. Her book Your Daily Life Is Your Temple was designated a best spirituality book of the year in 2006 by Spirituality & Practice. Rowthorn is a life-long passionate environmentalist. She has taken her pen and notebook all over the USA, and to Asia, Latin America, Oceana, and Europe. Wherever she goes, following John Muir's example, she seeks out the wildest hiking trails, mountains, and coastlines. Along the way she collects evocative ecological literature from the great cultures and religions of the world. Earth and All the Stars (2000) was her first compilation of ecological readings. Her most recent books on the same theme are Song of the Universe (2008) and Feast of the Universe, (2009). The author stays busy on the circuit with book readings, teaching, and leading retreats, workshops, and eco-hikes. Visit Annerowthorn.com.
