A rich and captivating work that raises important questions about the relationship between nature and culture. . . .It has the potential to become a classic.
Humanatureby Peter Goin
The slow growth of redwood forests...the annual migration of Canada geese ...winters first snowfall ...things such as these persuade us that nature carries on its cycles regardless of human activities-and always will. Yet, a closer look reveals that all around us nature is becoming an illusion created by human ingenuity. As we control our rivers and shores, manage the forests, and develop habitats for endangered species, it becomes increasingly hard to think of nature as something ""out there"" that exists independently of us.
