ABC-CLIO, 2005 - 323 pages
An engaging, personalized look at the interplay between people and nature in the northeastern and midwestern United States, from prehistory to the present.
That humans shape their environment and, in turn, must respond to the consequences is broadly obvious. Using the voices of historical figures, both notable and obscure, this book brings to life the interaction between humans and their environments and illustrates the consequences of those interactions. Part of ABC-CLIO's unique Nature and Human Societies series, this book enables readers to better understand humanity's effect on the environment.
