Early Praise for Terranexus
“Reading David’s beautifully written essay will make you realize that the wonders of nature lie right beyond your doorstep. So grab your kids, turn off your cells phones, and enjoy them.”
–Gina McCarthy, former U. S. EPA Administrator
“Leff has given us a permission slip and a directive: go forth and see. Travel local, travel deep. See the beauty in ‘hard-used places.’ Canoe polluted and pillaged rivers. Everything ordinary is beautiful. Go forth and make your own terranexus, your own ‘profound connection’ to your home ground. Celebrate your place in earth―there is no other like it.”
–Howard Mansfield, author of Dwelling in Possibility
