The River Always Wins: Water as a Metaphor for Hope and Progress (Paperback)
A meditation on movement of both society and nature, based on the author's experiences as an activist. In short, aphoristic chapters, Marquis explores the power of force and collectivity through the metaphor of water. As an activist, David Marquis founded the Oak Cliff Nature Preserve in Dallas, and has consulted with the Texas Conservation Alliance since 2011. He brings an unerring belief in the connective and healing power of nature to The River Always Wins."The River Always Wins is an arts-based project--book, music, video, stage, audio book, and visual--designed to inspire people to come together to create positive, lasting social change."
