Review by Publisher Summary 4

In a backpack-sized anthology inspired by Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki (who said that: "The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it."), Benjamin collects 20 original essays by diverse thinkers on our relationship with the natural environment. Authors present activist credos and personal reflections, e.g., calls for improved science education and communication for 'environmental citizenship,' and Suzuki's influence on them.
