The Revolution Where You Live: Stories from a 12,000-Mile Journey Through a New America (MP3 CD)
Like many of us, YES Magazine cofounder Sarah van Gelder was alarmed about the state of American society; deep divides, racial violence, climate change, economic insecurity, and inequality. She confided her fears to a friend, who said, If the universe could deploy the one small person that is you, what would it have you do? Her answer surprised them both: I'd go out traveling and see for myself. She visited eighteen states and five Indian reservations, big cities and small towns, she headed out on the back roads and into the abandoned neighborhoods. Van Gelder invites you along as she meets the quirky and the committed, the local heroes and the healers who, under the mass media's radar, are getting stuff done.
