Language Older Than Words (Paperback)

Derrick Jensen

A poignant memoir of a harrowingly abusive childhood.

A Language Older than Words tells of the extraordinary journey of one man striving to save his own spirit and that of our planet. Comparing his physically and sexually abusive father's destruction of his family with mankind's systematic destruction of civilisation, Jensen uses his experiences as a teacher, environmentalist, beekeeper, abused child and survivor to investigate his own wounded psyche, as well as condemning a culture that fosters abuse.
