Publisher Comments:

Canadas pioneering radical naturalist now back in print!

John A. Livingston is Canadas Rachel Carson. His cogent, brilliant writing on the effects of man on nature has defined an entire generation of environmentalists and is required reading for anyone who wants to understand the underpinnings of todays issues. Radical when first published in the early 1970s and 1980s, Livingstons arguments that we must find new approaches to our perception of nature and our place within it or face the irreversibility of our destruction of nature now reads prophetically. The Reader brings two of Livingstons poetic and provocative books back into print for a new generation of readers and features an appreciation by Graeme Gibson.
