Gr 9-12-- This book takes a different approach to the subject of ecology. Through 13 independent chapters (3 fiction, 9 nonfiction, 1 interview), readers are exposed to several cultures and their spokespersons' concerns about humankind's relationship with nature. Countries represented include Bali, Brazil, Germany, Ireland, Nigeria, Russia, Thailand, and the United States. Such diverse topics as the development of Amazonia, migrant farm workers, wolves, pollution, and irrigation are covered. This volume provides good introductory material. Written in an accessible style and presenting information that is both interesting and timely, it's sure to pique students' curiosity to pursue further resources on this important matter. --Kathleen L. Atwood, Pomfret School, CT
