About the Author

Bill McKibben is a writer and environmentalist who in 2014 was awarded the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called the alternative Nobel. He is the author of more than a dozen books, including The End of Nature (1989), regarded as the first work for a general audience about climate change. He is also a founder of, the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement; the Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies at Middlebury College; and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His honors include the Gandhi Prize, the Thomas Merton Prize, and honorary degrees from eighteen colleges and universities.


"To say that this book is a particular delight for me would be an understatement. I wrote The End of Nature when I was twenty-seven, and when I go back to read it now some parts seem jejune. That's not true of the writing in Coming of Age at the End of Nature, which is mature, reflective, deep, and lovely. It makes me hopeful." -- From the foreword by Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature

"A fine collection of environmental writing in this thoughtful anthology from a 'new generation of fossil fuel freedom fighters'... an earnest compendium... an intelligent and heart-felt glimpse into the lives of the emerging authors Bill McKibben greatly influenced and a must-read for anyone interested in environmental issues, particularly climate change." -- Starred Review Library Journal

"These unflinching voices make a demand on the rest of us, if we have the courage to listen: it's time to make whatever life we can" -- Orion

"Coming of Age at the End of Nature ushers in a new wave of millennial thought on the environment, climate change, and the art of living." -- Foreword Reviews

"A collection of essays by twentysomethings working to get us out of this planetary pickle." -- Grist
