Stephanie Kaza is a long-time lover of trees, a practicing Zen Buddhist, and an environmentalist. A native of Oregon, Kaza spent many years in Burlington, Vermont, as professor and program director of the Environmental Studies at the University of Vermont. Her books explore timely questions of the challenging issues in climate, sustainability, and humanity facing us today. Kaza brings a contemplative and personal approach to exploring the intersection of religion and ecology. In her reflections on trees, she investigates what it means to reinhabit place, live fully, and speak from the truth of experience. More pertinent now than ever, her intimate and thoughtful explorations demonstrate the possibility of ecological sanity in our time. In 2015 Kaza returned to her beloved homeland of Portland, where she once again communes with the tides, the Douglas firs, and the grand Oregon landscapes of fire, ice, and flood. She also communes with her favorite artist and printmaker, Davis Te Selle, who, by a delightful coincidence, happens to be her husband.
