Entangled Edens Visions of the Amazon Candace Slater
"A very important book.... It addresses a very real failing of modern environmentalism, which for all its virtues, tends to dehumanize and metaphorically depopulate.... Instead of forcing us to choose between land and people, Slater uses the stories and the people who tell them to rethink human relations with nature and each other."
--Richard White, author of The Organic Machine
