The Last Wild Edge: One Woman's Journey from the Arctic Circle to the Olympic Rain Forest
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe northwestern edge of North America is a final edge to settle on a finite planet. Where does mankind go from here? Where else have we not settled, altered, and consumed ? Author Susan Zwinger suspects that we have saved this wild edge for last because its geography is punched, exploded, ground, and drenched. Its forest of enormous trees once created a boundary difficult to penetrate, let alone farm. Yet, today this wildness is under threat, as civilization bores its way into even this remote edge.
