"Subversive Spiritualities is a tour de force of the kind that can only be produced by a mature scholar with tremendous interdisciplinary range and rich, real-world experience. Unceasingly provocative and wonderfully written, it deserves a wide reading by anyone interested how we might rekindle intimacy and reciprocity with nature."--Bron Taylor, author of Dark Green Religion: Nature Spirituality and the Planetary Future
