📒The Wilderness Reader ✍ Frank Bergon

But for all the enthusiasm that accompanied its conquest, we have not necessarily developed an appreciation for the actual phenomenon of wilderness itself - its trees, bogs, snakes, rocks, wolves and dirt.

📒D Sert Solitaire ✍ Edward Abbey
📝D sert solitaire Book Synopsis : Peu de livres ont autant déchaîné les passions que celui que vous tenez entre les mains. Publié pour la première fois en 1968, Désert solitaire est en effet de ces rares livres dont on peut affirmer sans exagérer qu'il “changeait les vies” comme l'écrit Doug Peacock. À la fin des années 1950, Edward Abbey travaille deux saisons comme ranger dans le parc national des Arches, en plein cœur du désert de l'Utah. Lorsqu'il y retourne, une dizaine d'années plus tard, il constate avec effroi que le progrès est aussi passé par là. Cette aventure forme la base d'un récit envoûtant, véritable chant d'amour à la sauvagerie du monde, mais aussi formidable coup de colère du légendaire auteur du Gang de la clef à molette. Chef-d'œuvre irrévérencieux et tumultueux, Désert solitaire est un classique du nature writing et sans conteste l'un des plus beaux textes jamais inspirés par le désert américain.

📝American Indian Literature Environmental Justice and Ecocriticism Book Synopsis : Although much contemporary American Indian literature examines the relationship between humans and the land, most Native authors do not set their work in the "pristine wilderness" celebrated by mainstream nature writers. Instead, they focus on settings such as reservations, open-pit mines, and contested borderlands. Drawing on her own teaching experience among Native Americans and on lessons learned from such recent scenes of confrontation as Chiapas and Black Mesa, Joni Adamson explores why what counts as "nature" is often very different for multicultural writers and activist groups than it is for mainstream environmentalists. This powerful book is one of the first to examine the intersections between literature and the environment from the perspective of the oppressions of race, class, gender, and nature, and the first to review American Indian literature from the standpoint of environmental justice and ecocriticism. By examining such texts as Sherman Alexie's short stories and Leslie Marmon Silko's novel Almanac of the Dead, Adamson contends that these works, in addition to being literary, are examples of ecological criticism that expand Euro-American concepts of nature and place. Adamson shows that when we begin exploring the differences that shape diverse cultural and literary representations of nature, we discover the challenge they present to mainstream American culture, environmentalism, and literature. By comparing the work of Native authors such as Simon Ortiz with that of environmental writers such as Edward Abbey, she reveals opportunities for more multicultural conceptions of nature and the environment. More than a work of literary criticism, this is a book about the search to find ways to understand our cultural and historical differences and similarities in order to arrive at a better agreement of what the human role in nature is and should be. It exposes the blind spots in early ecocriticism and shows the possibilities for building common groundÑ a middle placeÑ where writers, scholars, teachers, and environmentalists might come together to work for social and environmental change.
