Even as seas rise against the shores, another great tide is beginning to rise — a tide of outrage against the pillage of the planet, a tide of commitment to justice and human rights, a swelling affirmation of moral responsibility to the future and to Earth's fullness of life.

GREAT TIDE RISING: Finding Clarity and Moral Courage to Confront Climate Change
released February 8, 2016
Even as seas rise against the shores, another great tide is beginning to rise – a tide of outrage against the pillage of the planet, a tide of commitment to justice and human rights, a swelling affirmation of moral responsibility to the future and to Earth’s fullness of life.
"In this probing and lyrical book, Moore reminds readers of the inter-relatedness of all living things through time, and she offers a clarion call to summon the moral courage to 'rage against the dying' of the Earth. An impassioned and well-reasoned cry for 'great rising tides of affirmation of justice and human decency and shared thriving.'"
MORAL GROUND: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril
Edited by Kathleen Dean Moore and Michael P. Nelson, Foreword by Desmond Tutu
Although climate destabilization is a scientific and technical issue, it is primarily a moral issue. MORAL GROUND gathers the testimony of one hundred of the world’s moral leaders, all calling us to honor our responsibilities to the future.
"Could there be a more pressing book topic than the fate of humanity?"
– Utne Reader
WILD COMFORT: The Solace of Nature
With stories about kayaking in a snowstorm, wading among salmon in the dark, and cooking breakfast in the desert, Moore offers readers a profound meditation on the healing power of nature.
"In its grounded wisdoms, humility, curiosity, and in the kaleidoscope beauty of its descriptions, Wild Comfort reminds how to see, how to sing; how to welcome, with equal gravity and grace, whatever asks entrance into our lives. It is destined to become a classic."
