Watershed, by Ranae Lenor Hanson – Coming May 11th, 2021

Pre-order – UMNPress

“We need Watershed now. There’s no book like it. It’s as clear-eyed and immersive as the northern Minnesota waters that birthed it. It’s the story for our time, and just in the nick of time. With courage and tenderness Ranae Hanson pulls back the curtain to show us that the harm we have wrought on the world is no longer a future problem to be solved. It is here now in our bodies as much as in our watersheds and forests—and in the beloved homelands of her immigrant-refuge students whose voices and stories pierce any doubt, any ill-founded hope that all will be well.”
—Eric Utne, founder, Utne Reader

Watershed: Attending to Body and Earth in Distress will be published by the University of Minnesota Press May 11th, 2021.
