Books About Protecting the Environment

 
 

Today's thinkers don't just dream about new inventions and technologies; they are also coming up with new ways to do such essential things as feed ourselves and enrich our lives, while ensuring that the natural beauty of the earth will be here for our grandchildren and their grandchildren to enjoy. Even the humble earthworm can teach us about the power to change the world for the better, and many forward-thinking people have begun to listen.

We have enlightening and entertaining works by visionaries like Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and Bill McKibben; explorations of lakes, streams, and other vital waterways; collections of inspiring nature photography; and new ways to manage the land that work with—rather than against—its natural processes.

And lest anyone think the earth is ours to squander, or that abundant agriculture is the privilege of wealthy countries, we also offer cautionary visions with clear evidence that we will be unable to ignore our planet or our fellow inhabitants for much longer—and how we can remedy our own carelessness.
