Inspiring and uplifting, David Suzuki explains our biological needs, which include dependence on air, water, soil, and the sun's energy--and a fifth vital need, the diversity of life itself. Suzuki shows how these elements connect us to each other and to the Earth and how human beings have a genetically programmed need to live with other species. THE SACRED BALANCE offers the seeds of a new direction for us all. Illustrated.
