Item Description...
An anthology of seminal American environmental writing from the past two centuries considers their influence on the ways in which people view the natural world and includes pieces by such figures as Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and John James Audubon.

Publishers Description
As America and the world grapple with the consequences of global environmental change, writer and activist Bill McKibben offers this unprecedented, provocative, and timely anthology, gathering the best and most significant American environmental writing from the last two centuries.

Classics of the environmental imaginationA-the essays of Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and John Burroughs; Aldo LeopoldA's A Sand County Almanac; Rachel CarsonA's Silent SpringA-are set against the inspiring story of an emerging activist movement, as revealed by newly uncovered reports of pioneering campaigns for conservation, passages from landmark legal opinions and legislation, and searing protest speeches. Here are some of AmericaA's greatest and most impassioned writers, taking a turn toward nature and recognizing the fragility of our situation on earth and the urgency of the search for a sustainable way of life. Thought-provoking essays on overpopulation, consumerism, energy policy, and the nature of A"natureA" join ecologistsA' memoirs and intimate sketches of the habitats of endangered species. The anthology includes a detailed chronology of the environmental movement and American environmental history, as well as an 80-page color portfolio of illustrations.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Environmentalism  Oct 14, 2008
This very unique book offers 1000 pages of environmental thought and wisdom from dozens of important writers. Through a unique and masterful editing process, Bill McKibben has arranged the selections not just chronologically but also in order of influence. The end result is a rewarding illustration of the history of American environmental thought, as Thoreau's wisdom on the sanctity of wilderness has slowly converged with matters of social justice and the analysis of power, as evidenced here by lesser-known modern writers whose works will surely become classics in the near future. McKibben has also included writers from a wide variety of backgrounds, with fairly typical outdoor essayists and community organizers sharing space with everyone from physicists to economists to politicians, not to mention some surprises like interested cartoonist R. Crumb and sympathetic songwriters Joni Mitchell and Marvin Gaye. Some of the selections may raise questions from the concerned reader, such as the crass boosterism of P.T. Barnum; and sometimes McKibben had trouble distilling a writer's voluminous offerings into useful introductory excerpts, like in the 26 repetitive pages from William Cronon. But the book also benefits immeasurably from a robust collection of illustrations and a masterful chronology of developments in environmental history and literary works about it.

This massive tome offers a lifetime of inspiring thoughts and pointed observations for everyone from the most ardent activist to the leisurely outdoor lover, and the book will find a premier spot on your bookshelf for years to come. [~doomsdayer520~]
