Synopsis

Synopsis

After an angry confrontation with his son on a hiking trip intended to restore their relationship, Scott Sanders realizes that his own despair has darkened his son's world. In Hunting for Hope he sets out to gather his own reasons for facing the future with hope, finding powers of healing in nature, in culture, in community, in spirit, and within each of us.
Praise

Praise

This is one of the rare books in which hope seems reasonable, and the grace and economy of the prose nourishes the parched spirit. -Robert Taylor, The Boston Globe

"An extraordinary book by one of America's most elegant writers. It is a veritable treasure trove of wisdom served up with love, imaginative verve, and spiritual sensitivity." -Values and Visions Reviews Service

"Sanders has blended the essences of philosophers, teachers, poets and authors, all filtered through his own unique Midwestern heart and mind, into passionate, crystal-clear, prize-winning essays." -James Alexander Thom, Indianapolis Star

"A small, bright arrowhead of a book: carefully hewn, piercing, balanced; betraying in its form its very substance. . . . [Sanders's] particular, urgent voice wields that arrowhead of hope into the hearts of his children, his students, and his readers." -GraceAnne A. DeCandido, Booklist
