Mother Earth and Other Pretty Girls

Mother Earth and Other Pretty Girls

Description

A war veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder attempts to heal his emotional wounds by fleeing to the woods around his grandparent's abandoned farm, only to encounter a mysterious young woman. An alcoholic examines his reasons for drinking on a day hike to a unique waterfall. An arrowhead taken from a cave makes for some strange evenings for a young carpenter and his girlfriend. Ranging from Tennessee tobacco fields to Mount St. Helens, dusty construction sites to fluorescently lit cubicles in city skyscrapers with plenty of pit stops at bars in between, Mother Earth & Other Pretty Girls takes the reader on a journey that is like being on a roadtrip with Thoreau and Kerouac as your travelling companions. Interwoven with the debauchery, heartache, and descriptions of Earth in all its seasons and glory, Plant offers an eco-gonzo approach to finding personal renewal in both Nature and the smile of a pretty girl. Richly illustrated with photographs by the author.
