"A New Path is a clear and easily understood presentation of a meaningful and nature-connected future.  Be prepared for the paradigm shift, as the world feels different after just the first chapter."     Bremen James, farmer/father/forager

 

A New Path is the long-awaited book that discusses our ancestral norms and how to emulate them in the modern world.  Long have humans believed they can transcend their biology and live apart from nature, but evidence-based research makes it very clear that there are ramifications for nature divorcement.  Taking a holistic approach to health (both human and ecosystem), this book tackles diet, water, medicine, movement, nature immersion, awareness, hormesis, community, ancestral technologies, and market place choices.  It lays out a road map for one vision of rewilding, where humans again see themselves as part of the landscape and strive to make decisions that do not harm future generations.  It seeks to replace egocentric living with an ecocentric path that anyone, regardless of their living situation, can embark on to promote health, awareness, nature connection, and strength.

Anyone who has understood the value of paying attention to our biological norms, but lacked the cohesive arguments to help family and friends understand why such a lifestyle has value, will appreciate this book.  It presents evidence from two important points of view:  historical observations of hunter-gatherers combined with modern scientific study.  This books frames the benefits of rewilding in a manner that open-minded humans can understand (and apply).

"Arthur Haines quite literally lays out a new path, and an educational alternative, to the modern existence that so many of us have come to know as normal.  This beautiful publication helps to remind its readers of many simple (but forgotten) truths, and works to share the language of nature with a new generation of digital dependents."  — Neal K. Lofgren, High School Educator
