Best of: Author Interview: At Home on an Unruly Planet
“Everywhere, the weather, the sky, the water, even the terrain on which we have built our homes is becoming unruly. It is literally unsettling — causing the unsettlement of some places that used to be more livable.”
This is an excerpt from Madeline Ostrander's new book At Home on an Unruly Planet: Finding Refuge on a Changed Earth. The book follows the story of four disasters, all brought about or exacerbated by climate change, and how the people affected maintained or rebuilt their sense of home. We spoke to her to hear more about the book and the inspiration behind it.
