    The View from Stawberry Hill, Reflections on the Hottest Year on Record by William Sargent

    The View from Stawberry Hill, Reflections on the Hottest Year on Record
    by William Sargent
    $16 plus shipping 

    Before beginning this latest book, science writer William Sargent had intended to take a break from writing about the world’s environmental crises to “tend to his own garden” in Ipswich. Yet, as the hottest year on record unfolded with a series of massive fires, floods and the most devastating storm ever to hit the East Coast, it became increasingly difficult to keep the focus inward. What results is an account of his travels from home to the far corners of the globe to chronicle these events. In the end, he draws hope from science, nature and his own deep and abiding sense of the earth and universal spirituality. Signed copies of William Sargent's book are available through Greenbelt for $16.00.
