The John Muir quote has prompted this question.
First, the background: I'm seriously considering pulling together and
proposing a special topics course in "Essays on American Environmentalism."
Just off the cuff, I'd put the following on the reading list.
**Wallace Stegner, Beyond the Hundredth Meridian
** Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
** H. D. Thoreau, Walden
I'd like to include something from John Muir, but don't know where to start.
Anybody have any ideas about who/what would be excellent choices for such a
class? I'm looking for non-fiction commentaries, writings that have
prompted serious environmental responses. Plus, I don't want the list to
have a Western-exclusive point of view.
