Rooted in rivers, inspired by wetlands, sources and tributaries, this book weaves its path between the banks of memory and story, from Florida to Kyoto, storm-ravaged New Orleans to London, via San Francisco and across Ghana. We navigate through flood and drought to confront the place of wildness in the age of technology.
Part memoir, part manifesto, part travelogue and part love letter to myth and ecology,The Other Side of the River is an intricately woven tale of finding your flow... and your roots.
“Evocative and beautifully written.” -Craig Chalquist, author, Terrapsychology nd Professor in Ecopsychology

“Beautiful, important, wise work! This is fluid writing... Eila deftly transitions between matters of family, culture, race, geography, mind and body. The river is a wonderful metaphor.” -Carolyn Cooke, author, Amor and Psycho
