              This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey W...rench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation's majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.

              Working to Restore: Why We Do Business in the Regenerative Era

              Working to Restore: Why We Do Business in the Regenerative Era (Hardback)

              During this time of unprecedented environmental, cultural, and financial global disruption, can business save the world? After decades of extraction of human and environmental resources and years of attempts to make business sustainable, today's startups are rewriting the rules o...f business: how it's done, with whom, and, most importantly, for what purpose. We are entering an era when many enterprises have as their primary goal not to make money but to solve problems. From promoting responsible production and consumption to equitable opportunities for all, from encouraging climate action and good health and well-being, these businesses have moved beyond sustainability to regeneration. In Working to Restore, reporter Esha Chhabra draws on her decades of reporting on sustainability to highlight pioneering grassroots entrepreneurs building a new blueprint for business in the 21st century. Working all around the globe, they are obsessed with rethinking, restructuring, and regenerating. For these entrepreneurs, it's about the process -- how was it made, by whom, using what resources, with what materials - and the problems those processes work to alleviate. Examining efforts in nine areas- agriculture, waste, inclusivity in supply chain, inclusivity for the collective good, women, travel, health, energy, and finance - each chapter describes the challenges the world faces in each area and how business is helping to solve these problems. These efforts address a number of problems articulated by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) thus further demonstrating the global relevance of this work. Several companies are profiled illustrating a new perspective on business's powerful role to regenerate the world. These entrepreneurs illustrate an evolution in all aspects of business. They obsess over supply chains. They hire folks that society says are not employable. They travel far and wide to work with artisans, farmers, and manufacturers who create quality products. They s

              The sheer granite walls of Yosemite Valley galvanized a dedicated group of rock climbers in the 1960s, who saw the nearly holdless, glacier-polished faces as the purest form of challenge. The awesome Half Dome and El Capitan were first climbed in the late 1950s, ushering in a new... era of rock climbing later known as the golden age of Yosemite climbing. During this era, the climbers of the sixties developed the techniques, tools, and philosophies that made Yosemite the most influential rock climbing arena in the world. In the spirit of the social changes of the sixties, a small group of committed climbers dropped out of mainstream work and society and took up residence in Camp 4, perfecting their skills and developing a unique social scene. This austere, boulder-strewn campground became the epicenter of the climbing world. It served both as a launching pad for spectacular feats and adventures and a refuge from them. Here plans were made, teams were formed, and the rest of life was lived. The significance of Camp 4 was recently recognized with its placement on the National Register of Historic Places.

              Yosemite in the Fifties: The Iron Age

              Yosemite in the Fifties: The Iron Age (Hardback)

              Edited by Long, John; Fidelman, Dean; Designed by Alder, Tom

              Yosemite's Iron Age was that critical span of years found in any adventure or exploratory pursuit, from ocean navigation to moon shots, when prevailing technology is a limiting factor. New gear and techniques are invented as needed, leaving pioneers to build the boat as they sail... it. Because the process builds off trial and error and dangerous mistakes, a creative renaissance can feel like a bunch of maniacs just winging it. Physical and psychological barriers, remote as the dome of space, must also be passed--by vision, willpower, courage, even recklessness. But the barriers will be broken. And at this crossroads of desire and technology bursts a geyser of narratives that since the days of Homer have shaped history and inspired humankind. Better than half a century after the first ascent of El Capitan, the deeds of Yosemite's 1950s-era Iron Age, are no longer viewed as climbs or mere adventures. Rather, they are assaults on the human barrier, pushing that much higher toward the moon, where Neil Armstrong took his giant step for mankind 11 years after fellow explorer Warren Harding crawled onto the summit of El Capitan. Of course as Marco Polo and Chuck Yeager would readily tell us, no adventure is a one-time affair. Discovering the Nile, breaking the sound barrier, climbing El Capitan and walking on the moon are all of a piece and fundamental to humanity. These are the exploits that animate the age-old quest into the unknown, and show us what we might accomplish in this world. For Yosemite in the Fifties, we've given the stage almost entirely over to the original source material, the first-person narratives, archive photos (artfully restored by Dean Fidelman) and memorabilia particular to the seminal ascents of the era. Every period has a footprint unique to its time and place. Later-day commentary is helpful to establish historical context, but it can never replace the source material for visceral power, emotion and beauty. Like light from a dead star, still visib

              For over twenty years, Patagonia has organized a Tools Conference, where experts provide practical training to help make activists more effective. Now Patagonia has captured Tools' best wisdom and advice into a book, creating a resource for any organization hoping to hone core sk...ills like campaign and communication strategy, grassroots organizing, and lobbying as well as working with business, fundraising in uncertain times and using new technologies. Patagonia hopes the book will be dog-eared and scribbled in; a solid, inspiring guide and reliable companion. The book is organized in two sections: Strategies, and Tools. Each chapter, written by a respected expert in the field, covers essential principals as well as best practices. A hands-on case study accompanies each chapter and demonstrates the principles in action. Sprinkled throughout are inspirational thoughts from acclaimed activists, such as Jane Goodall, Bill McKibben, Wade Davis, Annie Leonard, and Terry Tempest Williams. An activist's companion in the environmental movement.
