I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
There’s a really thoughtful book that’s been out since the fall that looks at the unique culture and spirituality of the Pacific Northwest region–British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon. It is a collection of thought-provoking essays by 15 various writers, scholars, historians, pollsters, poets, philosophers, and more. The collection is edited by my guest now, the award winning Vancouver Sun columnist Douglas Todd. The book is called Cascadia: The Elusive Utopia, Exploring the Spirit of the Pacific Northwest. It is well worth picking up, as it touches on many aspects of life, politics, culture, religion and spirituality and more. Published by Ronsdale Press, the book retails for $21.95. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Doug Todd; Good morning, Mr. Todd.
