Tom HainesE-book: $17.99
[Haines] came away from his walking tours realizing we need to understand how deeply enmeshed we are with a fossil-fueled world. . . . His new book probes better ways to stay warm in the future.
—Portland Press Herald
With the extent of climate skepticism among a sizeable portion of the American population, [Walking to the Sun]is an attempt to understand the scale of energy production in the United States and not to further polarize the climate debate.
What a fine project! This book will give you a useful sense of the scale of our energy enterprise, and help you understand the choices that lie ahead.
—Bill McKibben, author The End of Nature
If you want to understand where your energy comes from and the individuals whose work turns fossil fuels-or sunlight-into the energy you use every day, this is the book.
—Meera Subramanian, author of A River Runs Again
A compelling, informative, and humane read, at boot level, of our nation’s energy addiction.
—Paul Salopek, author of Oil Safari: In Search of the Source of America’s Fuel
