Description: "A good old age can be the crown of all our life's experiences, the masterwork of a lifetime. There is much speculation about life after death. What about life before death", Helen Nearing writes in her foreword to this superb collection that highlights the spiritual in the practical.

With her husband, Scott, Helen Nearing was a leading voice in the self-sufficiency movement and nonconformist thinking. Here she reflects, through the wise words of others, on the meaning of a long life and the wonder of what lies beyond. She shares the inspirations of a range of writers and thinkers -- from Walt Whitman to Annie Dillard, Ovid to Carlos Castaneda, Rabindranath Tagore to Anatole Broyard -- to present the greatest, most varied picture of the possibilities that advanced age and death offer us.

In her early nineties when she selected the pieces, Nearing tragically died in an automobile accident as the hardcover edition of this book was being published, a fact that makes this collection especially poignant.
