The Earth's Blanket

December 2007

“[Turner’s] writing is as accessible as it is fluid, and the book functions almost as an academic narrative. …The Earth’s Blanket is a journey through cultural history and will undoubtedly inspire all who read it. First Nations culture is rich with connections to the land and provides a blueprint for sustainability that must become central to the way we see our world… [Turner] shows how concepts of wealth and value must change – not only for the Earth to survive, but for people to regain a sense of place and community.”

The Earth's Blanket

April 2006

"Turner presents an affectionate and lyrical portrait of aboriginal people who persist in resource-management practices that have been sadly overlooked. It is a "book of ideas," as it claims, but it is also a book of stories and philosophy and an encounter with people, life ways, folklore, resourse-use intelligence, and that overworked term wisdom."
