Reviews

"Powerfully written essays on our relationship to wilderness. . . . This sometimes blistering, provocative, well-written book is an ecoradical's dream come true--and every reader concerned with wilderness issues should take it into account."--Kirkus Reviews

"This is not a safe little treatise. It's a clarion call, a manifesto, a defense summation for the embattled, innocent, integrated world."--Western American Literature
