Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Apostle Islands are a solitary place of natural beauty that rise out of Lake Superior. Now designated a wilderness area, efforts are underway to "rewild" land that has been shaped and reshaped by people for centuries. This book tells the story of how we came to equate human activity exclusively with the loss of nature and wilderness when in reality all our wildernesses are products of complicated interactions between human and natural processes.

James W. Feldman is assistant professor of history and environmental studies at the University of Wisconsin

"This remarkably rich and complex book would be a useful resource for courses in environmental studies, historical or environmental geography, environmental history, or tourism and recreation studies. . . . A thoroughly researched, highly readable account of the rewilding of a landscape. Highly recommended." -Choice
