About the Author:

Stephanie Mills is a writer and editor whose career began in 1970 at the helm of Earth Times, a muckraking tabloid. Mills also served as editor of Not Man Apart, CoEvolution Quarterly, and California Tomorrow. Her first book, Whatever Happened to Ecology? was published by Sierra Club Books in 1989.

From Library Journal:

Not just another collection of nature writing, this stimulating and useful volume reprints reviews of important works on environmental issues and excerpts from these works, linking them together with sensitive essays by editor Mills. The books discussed range from Aldo Leopold's classic Sand County Almanac to George Orwell's The Road to Wigan Pier ; the authors run the gamut from Rachel Carson to E.O. Wilson and Stephen J. Gould, plus lesser known but erudite writers on pollution and environmental problems. In addition to the works covered in detail, another 100 are briefly annotated. This compilation of critical material on varied topics is an excellent resource for high school and college teachers of biology, ecology, or environmental issues.
