Summary
"Inspired by a rough-and-tumble journey across country and down river, David Gessner makes the case for a new environmentalism. In a frank, funny, and incisive call to arms that spans from the Cape Wind Project to the Monkey Wrench Gang, he considers why we do or do not fight to protect and restore wilderness, and reminds us why it's time to join the fray. Though environmental awareness is on the rise, our march toward ecological collapse continues. What was once a movement based primarily on land preservation, endangered species, and policy reform is now a fractured mess of back-to-the-landers, capitalist green lifestyle" vendors, technology worshipers, and countless special interest groups. Known as an environmental advocate reminiscent of Edward Abbey" (Library Journal), Gessner rebels against this fragmented environmentalism and holier-than-thou posturing. He also suggests that global problems, though real, are disempowering. While introducing us to lovable, stubborn Dan Driscoll, a regular guy fighting a local fight for a limited wilderness," he argues instead for a movement focused on local issues and grounded in a more basic, more holistic-and ultimately more effective-defense of home"--Provided by publisher
