Summary
"As America and the world grapple with the consequences of global environmental change, writer and activist Bill McKibben offers this unprecedented, inspiring, and timely anthology gathering the best and most significant American environmental writing from the last two centuries. "Each advance in environmental practice" in our nation's history, McKibben observes in his introduction, "was preceded by a great book." Here, for the first time in a single volume, are the words that made a movement." -- Book Jacket.
