Gorillas in the Myth
This is a best-of collection drawn from ten-years of Bothwell's nationally syndicated column, Duck Soup: Essays on the Submerging Culture. The essays principally concern the philosophy of sustainability, its personal application and wider ramifications. Are baby mice cute or a pestilence? How many baby mice and wolves and whales must die to make way for my life? Natural capitalism, composting toilets, corporate incentive packages and the fate of turtles all figure in these gentle and often humorous explorations of modern living.
