Cascadia: The Elusive Utopia
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Envied by people around the world, Cascadia -- which includes British Columbia, Washington and Oregon -- is remarkable for its mountains, evergreens, eagles, beaches, and liveable cities. Cascadia is also home to the least institutionally religious people in the continent. Despite their unusual resistance to old ways of doing religion, this book argues that most of the 14 million residents of this rugged land are often deeply spiritual, gaining their sense of the sacred through the land. The contributors, who include leading historians, economists, poets and more from both sides of the border, explain how the Pacific Northwest is nurturing a unique "spirituality of place", which could become a model for the planet.
