From the Publisher"Howell begins this fascinating book with a discussion of two films, Local Hero and On Deadly Ground, showing how in various manifestations of popular culture, 'each of us is either endowed with or searching for an environmental aesthetic. Howell argeus that people search for an expression of connection with nature in the popular media, and that this 'sacred journey' leads to better environmental policy. . . . [T]his ambitious and engrossing book presents a new understabding of its topic and is well worth reading. All general and academic collections."
"[H]arden's offering has the strength of providing a highly readable overview of Columbia River history colored by portrayals of actual participants in an important sector of the region's history. Because of this accessibility, the work will serve students of environmental history and those of regional and United States history generally well."
"[T]he author offers a number of insightful concepts and arguments. . . . Many of Howell's points are extremely thought-provoking."
