Terry Tempest Williams is one of S&P's Living Spiritual Teachers who has for years been active in various efforts to save the environment. At the same time, she has written beautiful spiritual books filled with reverence for the natural world and overflowing with wonder.
Beauty is so much more than right proportion or awesome bone structure or exquisite nude bodies. Williams writes: "Finding beauty in a broken world is acknowledging that beauty leads us to our deepest and highest selves. It inspires us. We have an innate desire for grace."
