Cultures of Habitat :on nature, culture, and storyby Gary Paul Nabhan
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Twenty-four essays explore the deep and complex connections between nature and people. Concentrating on cultures of habitat--human communities with long histories of interacting with one particular kind of terrain and its wildlife--the author considers such topics as the correlation between upheavals in human communities and the incidence of endangered species, the perils of monoculture in the Tequila fields of Mexico, and the nature of aggression and the struggle for limited resources.
