Synopses & Reviews
For more than a decade, Wild Earth has dedicated itself to redefining the conservation movement. Where once the goal was to set aside parks and preserves, the emphasis now is on rewilding the land and connecting viable habitats across the continent. In light of these ideas, Wild Earths editor has collected the magazines most provocative articles and essays to date. Contributors include Lyanda Haupt on bird extinction in Hawaii; Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gary Snyder on the moral shallowness of developers; Paul Martin and David Burney on the reintroduction of elephants to North America; and Jose Knighton on eco-porn, the promotion of environments as static objects.
