Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

It can be said that all of human history is environmental history, for all human action happens in an environment--in a place. This collection of essays explores the environmental history of the Pacific Northwest of North America, addressing questions of how humans have adapted to the northwestern landscape and modified it over time, and how the changing landscape in turn affected human society, economy, laws, and values.

"Northwest Lands and Peoples" includes essays by historians, anthropologists, ecologists, a botanist, geographers, biologists, law professors, and a journalist. It addresses a wide variety of topics indicative of current scholarship in the rapidly growing field of environmental history.

"A wide ranging and provocative collection of essays . . . . should work well in college courses of various disciplines. . . . valuable to land managers, agency scientists, urban planners, and others involved with environmental issues in the region."--Mark Harvey, author of "A Symbol of Wilderness: Echo Park and the American Conservation Movement"

"An ambitious and effective collection of important articles on various aspects of the environmental history of the Pacific Northwest. . . . The collection will supplement courses in Northwest history, geography, natural resource management, and environmental studies, as well as American studies, environmental sociology, environmental policy, and environmental law."--Stephen Haycox, University of Alaska Anchorage
