The Rust Belt Arcana: Tarot and Natural History in the Exurban Wilds guidebook is a series of essays mapping Major Arcana associations to the wildlife of the US industrial midwest.
These stories are evocative and pensive; stories of abundance and loss. A book about how mindful interactions with common animals can enrich our lives. In that knowing the world around us, we know ourselves more intimately.
A suggestion to see ourselves, not at the top of the food chain, but as a participant of the Earth’s biology. Written by Matt Stansberry, this poem to the Earth is a charm for any Rust Belt transplants or expatriates or appreciative visitors.
