Reviews
--David W. Orr, Environmental Studies Program, Oberlin College
--Lawrence Buell, Harvard University, author of The Environmental Imagination and Writing for an Endangered World
--Max Oelschlaeger, F.B. McAllister Endowed Chair in Community, Culture, and Environment, Northern Arizona University, author of The Idea of Wilderness
" "Nature by Design" is a wonderful book--an eloquent, wise, and useful guide to the potentials and ambiguities of ecological restoration. By connecting nature, community, memory, and intention so artfully, Eric Higgs has redefined the field." --David W. Orr, Environmental Studies Program, Oberlin College
" If you are looking for an up-to-date vision of environmental restoration that is both principled and pragmatic, read this book. Higgs's interweave of case studies and thoughtfully informed, multidisciplinary argument is all the stronger for its avoidance of easy answers." --Lawrence Buell, Harvard University, author of The Environmental Imagination and Writing for an Endangered World
" "Nature by Design" is a figurative compass indicating a direction that leads towards altered, healing relations between humankind and the larger, older, and increasingly fragile natural world. As Higgs notes, to dare set out on that course is as much a calling as a profession." --Max Oelschlaeger, F.B. McAllister Endowed Chair in Community, Culture, and Environment, Northern Arizona University, author of The Idea of Wilderness
