"The editors and writers of these thoughtful, challenging essays--diverse examples of the best work in the environmental humanities--take seriously the cultural assumptions that create and perpetuate contemporary environmental crises. With a scope that considers the potential of the poetic to alter the West's exploitative relationship with nature alongside cases of deteriorating ecosystems, which illustrate the need for a new social contract with the land, these writers call for radical change." -- Deanna Reder, Department of First Nations Studies and Department of English, Simon Fraser University; co-editor, with Linda M. Morra of 'Troubling Tricksters: Revisioning Critical Conversations' (WLU Press, 2010)
