A fantastic journey into a postapocalyptic world, seen through the eyes of a year-old girl, told by a master storyteller. The coming of the Great Stone destroyed almost everything that used to be. But high in one remote valley, the Church of Selene has found its way back from ruin. Sister Luka and her female converts offer sacrifices to the scarred and very close moon that hangs over their convent. It has been this way since the Stone hit.
She endlessly writes down the name of the moon to keep her in the sky where she belongs. But Aurora has a secret book she keeps hidden in her Scribe's chamber and into this diary she pours out her hopes and desires. Upsetting this fragile equilibrium is Willa, a young tomboy whose flamboyant arrival threatens the hard-won status quo of the sisters' community. As Aurora and Willa inch toward friendship, insurrection grows. But when an unexpected marvel occurs in the sky, it is clear that Aurora's work as the Scribe has failed.
The moon is threatening to remake the world all over again. Economy International Shipping. Special financing available Select PayPal Credit at checkout to have the option to pay over time. The protagonists live in San Francisco and have evolved in the direction of Ecotopia , reverting to a sustainable economy , using wind power, local agriculture, and the like. San Francisco is presented as a mostly pagan city where the streets have been torn up for gardens and streams, no one starves or is homeless, and the city's defense council consists primarily of nine elderly women who "listen and dream".
The novel describes "a utopia where women are leading societies but are doing so with the consent of men. The novel explores the events before and during the ensuing struggle between the two nations, pitting utopia and dystopia against each other. The story is primarily told from the points of view of year-old Maya, her nominal granddaughter Madrone, and her grandson Bird. Through these and other characters, the story explores many elements from ecofeminism and ecotopian fiction.
In the utopia described in the novel, the streets have been dug up and are replaced with gardens and fruit trees. Additionally, every house is equipped with a small garden plot. The food is available to everyone and access to food is not limited by money, power, or ownership.
The secret book of sacred things / Torsten Krol.
Farms where the city's fruit and vegetables grow are hidden behind the blocks of homes. There is plenty of food and everyone is said to have more than enough to eat. The gardens are lined with streams that run throughout the city.
The only remnants of the pavement that once existed are narrow paths meant for walking, cycling, or rollerblading. These paths are accented with colorful stones and mosaics. The city is depicted as a beautiful town where everything is shared yet nothing is lacking. In this ecotopian City, food - and many other resources - are understood as a commons, rather than a commodity. When the City is threatened by an army marching from the South, food becomes central to the non-violent philosophy and practice of the inhabitants as they grapple with how to respond to the possibility of violent attack.
The inhabitants decide to invite soldiers to leave the army and to join them living in this ecotopian city.
