New Book explores our personal connection to the environment

SEATTLE, WA., November 15, 2010—Ecotone Publishing, the industry’s first exclusive green architecture and design publisher, today announced the release of a new book, ZUGUNRUHE – The Inner Migration to Profound Environmental Change, authored by internationally acclaimed green design visionary Jason F. McLennan. Just prior to periods of great migration, certain species display agitation and restlessness - a
phenomenon referred to by scientists as ‘zugunruhe’. McLennan identifies a similar pattern emerging among people yearning for a sustainable future. This book is intended as a catalyst for anyone interested in exploring a deeper, more meaningful connection to the environmental movement. “Zugunruhe is a work of creative genius that draws us into an engaging journey of self-discovery, brings the biggest and most frightening issues of our time up close, and invites our engagement,” notes David Korten, “It will leave you envisioning human possibilities you never previously imagined.” Profound, personal and practical, McLennan’s narrative reminds us that individual efforts ripple outward and can lead to revolutionary change for the betterment of people and planet.
ZUGUNRUHE – The Inner Migration to Profound Environmental Change (ISBN
978-0-9749033-2-3)is available online and at architecture and building bookstores throughout North America. Foreword by renowned natural sciences writer, and author of Biomimicry, Janine Benyus. For more information, excerpts or to order the book, please visit

This book chock-full of genuine wisdom and thoughtful gwersi for everyone (no matter their current shade of green) that is interested in reconciling our impact on the earth. Get it for a good friend or colleague (read it first!) then gift it to them!
