Judging by the lack of reviews, it seems few people are reading this collection of essays. That's a shame. I've assigned it to a class to read as we discuss how our identities shape the way we see and interact with the environment. This collection gives voice to a lot of voiceless people and issues facing the U.S. and the globe. Each essay or poem here has a distinct style and perspective--those that are usually missing in conversations about environmentalism and what it means to live in harmony with the natural world. These essays challenge us to re-evaluate what the "normal" nature experience is like and force us to confront some ugly realities about the relationships between poverty, pollution, and people of color. Be advised there are two versions: one published in 2011 and the other published years before, and they are quite different. Beyond that, read this book if you enjoy nature writing or want some fresh perspectives on current environmentalism discussions.
