Not to Touch the Earth by Felix Little is a gripping novel about the importance of living in harmony with nature. Nia and Karana hope they will manage to make a new home for themselves far away from their tribe. Nia has a special connection with nature and believes everything has life. She can communicate with the environment, but Karana is not as trusting of her ethereal methods. Even though all the tragedies seem long behind them, the past still haunts them and causes them pain. Karana carries with him the problems that troubled their tribe and also a dark secret. He still loves comfort, but can he attain it without altering the environment? Will he listen to Nia's advice not to damage their surroundings out of convenience, not even for their unborn child?
With intelligence and sensitivity, Felix Little has crafted an evocative and utterly beguiling story that impressed me deeply. Not to Touch the Earth is an honest depiction of what living in harmony with nature really means. It reminds us why we should respect nature and take only what it offers instead of the things we want. I can't express how much I admire the author and how grateful I am to him for creating this inspiring and absorbing novel. Not to Touch the Earth offers a deeper look at the things we do in the name of survival and how they affect the environment and us. I highly recommend it for its message about the importance of maintaining the balance between our environment and human needs.
