"In a world sick with domination, striving, and consumption, Randy Woodley's Becoming Rooted offers a strong dose of very good medicine. This is a must-read for everyone who longs for peace." --Lisa Sharon Harper, president and founder of Freedom Road and author of The Very Good Gospel and Fortune

"As we hope to enter intentionally into a healing relationship with the earth, Woodley's stories and reminders can inspire us to get there." --Kaitlin Curtice, author of Native: Identity, Belonging, and Rediscovering God

"Woodley's work is inspiring and compelling, drawing us out of the Western mechanistic logics that lead to ecological devastation and possible extinction and into Indigenous-oriented worldviews grounded in harmony and balance with all creation." --Drew G. I. Hart, assistant professor of theology at Messiah University and author of Who Will Be a Witness? Igniting Activism for God's Justice, Love, and Deliverance

"Randy Woodley reminds us that we all have an understanding of what it means to be indigenous to a spiritual place. Through slowly unfolding layers of meaning he shows us where we may discover that place for ourselves." --Steven Charleston, elder of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, retired Episcopal bishop of Alaska, and author of Ladder to the Light

"Becoming Rooted offers us a precious way back into the land: a way into restoration and reciprocity, a way into healing ourselves and the land, a way of belonging again, a way of finding out who we are. Randy Woodley takes us by the hand and walks with us for the first one hundred days. We begin to think and feel differently, our senses gain new direction, and we start to gain roots. The law of the land becomes our most fundamental law, and we move as the land moves. After reading this book, we know enough to keep on the journey, to pay attention, to look and listen for the signs. Unless we become rooted, there is no future even for our next three generations. I am so grateful for this book and for the life and work of Randy Woodley." --Claudio Carvalhaes, associate professor of worship, Union Theological Seminary

"During this season of complete disruption in our world, nothing seems more sacred and more helpful than a book drawing us to the land--the land God created and called good. Words, models, products, theologies, and practices can seem empty when surrounded by hostility and pain. We need a book that guides us to be better earth dwellers, that apprentices us in the values God wrote into creation. Becoming Rooted is that book." --MaryKate Morse, spiritual director, seminary professor, and author of Lifelong Leadership and other books
