Through memoir style writing, author Sylvia Hoehns Wright demonstrates on the pages of Eco-legacy – a millennium woman’s heritage the importance of a woman pondering her life in all its phases, from the beginning experienced to the future desired. Inviting readers to walk on a path worn smooth by generational expectation, Wright savors nostalgia for places that are near and dear to heart, recalls family traditions; and perhaps more importantly, enables renewal of experience. Challenging all to celebrate heritage because heritage is more than a possession, it is a gift: the birthright of our children.
The present-day caretaker for her family’s 7th generational property, Wright credits the legacy of a rural Virginia childhood and Quaker lifestyle belief - view self as caretaker, not owner of property: a perspective of providing for present without sacrificing future – as the source for her eco commitment.

review posted by author for reader - As an environmentalist and president of the Cornell Douglas foundation, I have been searching for new words to define those of us who advocate for protecting our natural resources for future generations. Wright's word- eco-legacy is perfect: it encourages all of us to recognize that water, land, and air are not expendable luxuries, but critical resources we must sustain in our roles as responsible stewards. - Ann Cornell, President Cornell Douglas Foundation www.CornellDouglas.org
