Summary
"An award-winning ecology writer goes looking for the wilderness we've forgotten. Many people believe that only an ecological catastrophe will change humanity's troubled relationship with the natural world. In fact, as J.B. MacKinnon argues in this unorthodox look at the disappearing wilderness, we are living in the midst of a disaster thousands of years in the making--and we hardly notice it. We have forgotten what nature can be and adapted to a diminished world of our own making"--Dust jacket flap
Summary
A look at how the natural world has changed because of the impact of humans and what we should be doing to help restore it for future generations.
