As part of a Humanities Super Seminar on liberal arts and activism, the students read The KunstlerCast book.

The Heirloom

The Heirloom,” by Richard Davies, explores a post peak world where a group of Native Americans comes to terms with a dangerous and chaotic world. Guy McPherson, of Nature Bats Last, says, “Ultimately, The Heirloom is a wide-ranging tale about the human experience. It is about life, love, death, honor, and people struggling to make their way in a world not of their choosing.”

Part one of a trilogy, “The Heirloom” is available through Amazon in both paperback and eBook. The second book in the trilogy will be available late Summer 2012. Visit:

    Kunstler and Crary were interviewed by a live audience that was in the audience for their book on the 2012 Election. It was a college setting with students, and so it provided them with an opportunity to interact with the audience.
    This talk was done in front of an audience full of college students, which is why it worked as well as it did. There were also a lot of questions from the audience about assignment writing which may have been more interesting than just listening to them (although I think that this was indeed an effective way to engage with the audience).
