Compiled and edited by J. A. Wainwright (Professor of English, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada), Every Grain Of Sand: Canadian Perspectives On Ecology And Environment is a collection of thirteen erudite and knowledgeable essays on environmental issues from a decidedly Canadian perspective. The contributing authors and their presentations range from Lionel Rubinoff's "The World is Your Body", to "Anne Marie Dalton's "Who Cares about the Meadow?", to Onno Oerlemans' "Romantic Origins of Environmentalism", to Ehor Boyanowky's "Cutting a Deal with Attila". Even though the perspectives are Canadian, the issues are universal, making Every Grain Of Sand a very strongly recommended addition to Environmental Studies academic library collections and supplemental reading lists, as well as thoughtful and thought-provoking reading for non-specialist general readers with an interest in nature and environmental issues.
