Quality of Life: Our Ties to Heaven on Earth, An Uneasy Truce with Grid Electricity
by Teskey, Floramae, M.A., Prescott College, 2010, 102; 1482963
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis discusses the benefits of spending time in nature to gain and maintain balance within the environment and self. It discusses humanity's relationship with grid electricity and the results of choosing nature over entertainment technology activities. As a result, the topics cover many aspects of environmental, literary, sustainable, and social/ecological literacies. Throughout, I ask my reader to draw his or her own conclusion and choose a role of informed activism and intentional living.
