Description

As an antidote to the destructive culture of consumption dominating American lifetoday, Scott Russell Sanders calls for a culture of conservation that allows us to savor andpreserve the world, instead of devouring it. How might we shift to a more durable and responsibleway of life? What changes in values and behavior will be required? Ranging geographically fromsouthern Indiana to the Boundary Waters Wilderness and culturally from the Bible to billboards,Sanders extends the visions of Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and Rachel Carson to our own day. AConservationist Manifesto shows the crucial relevance of a conservation ethic at a time of mountingconcern about global climate change, depletion of natural resources, extinction of species, and theeconomic inequities between rich and poor nations. The important message of this powerful book isthat conservation is not simply a personal virtue but a public one.
