Publisher Comments:

Skin and Bones relates the history of Shellcracker Haven, a community pseudonym, to the development of fresh water fish and wildlife management in the state of Florida. It examines the clash of worldviews between community residents who are personally invested and locally sensitive to the ecosystem that has fed their families for several generations, and biologist resource managers who rely on detached science-based models and political sensitivity when making policy decisions. Skin and Bones challenges readers to think about the natural world as more than fragile species and ecosystems to be defended against human destruction or as discrete natural resources to be commercially exploited. Through the Knight family of Shellcracker Haven, one learns of the power of emotional investment in the natural world, and the cost to both people and planet when we destroy that relationship.

About the Author

Jane Gibson studied at Baylor University, earning an MS in Environmental Studies. She completed her doctorate in anthropology at the University of Florida. Her work has focused on the ways humans think about and relate to the natural world, particularly as these relationships are mediated by institutional changes associated with conservation and development. She currently teaches at the University of Kansas where her present research explores the impacts of ecotourism on host community families in Costa Rica and Belize.
