  The Other Side of Eden: Hunters, Farmers and the Shaping of the World: “In this wondrous book, Hugh Brody takes us on many journeys – to the Arctic Circle and the origins of humanity, and deeper yet into the mysteries of language and culture, dreams and colonialism. By doing so with trans-lucid originality, he provides readers with the chance to question how their own modern lives are organized and, more crucially, what we must re-imagine about the past and future if we are to survive as a truly thinking species.” -Ariel Dorfman, Professor of Literature and Latin American Studies, Duke University, and award winning author, poet and playwright

“Hugh Brody has the natural ability to be as one with us, eating moose ribs around a campfire, and also to grasp how our language, culture, history, and philosophy interplay in a grander scheme. His curiosity and humanity have led him to witness the profound tragedies and triumphs of aboriginal cultures in transition. Others have trod similar trails, but none with the capacity to derive and weave such a compelling message of hope.” -Neil Sterritt, Gitxsan leader and international advisor
