Sinopsis de: "Fisherman's Call"
Fisherman's Call contains a timely and vital message: the destructive human impact to life on our planet can no longer be ignored. Our very survival may depend on our attention to this fact. No longer can we ignore the fact that the human intellect, devoid of the heart's compassionate wisdom, is destructive and self-serving. Author William Billy Packer presents a series of personal stories about stewardship of the earth, drawn from his own experiences. Faced with instances of destruction of the environment, notably of the ancient redwood forests in northern California, Packer began questioning his own cultural conditioningall the things we learn and tend to accept as true from our families and the cultural environment we are exposed to as we grow and mature. This compilation describes Packer's personal story of awakening human compassion, but it is also a call to us all to open our hearts to the precious wonder of life all around us and awaken from the slumber of human ignorance. Inspiring, insightful and prophetic, Fisherman's Call challenges us to look deeply and question what is most meaningful in life. William Billy Packer was born and raised in Newburyport, Massachusetts where he raised his four children. He has worked as a design draftsman and highly regarded fishing boat captain until 1977, when he left the sea and began a thirty-year journey of awakening and discovery.
