Environmental Writing and Education

ed. Melody Graulich & Paul Crumbley

This major gathering of writers on the environment will be a valuable contribution to environmental studies and to environmental education. It is extremely well written and well organized. Its inclusiveness across disciplines, and its intelligent focus on environmental education may well help improve the field and shape subsequent publication. -Terrell Dixon, editor of City Wilds: Essays and Stories about Urban Nature

The writers are first-rate, in almost every case excellent representatives of the field who will be widely recognized by the varied groups interested in interdisciplinary environmental studies. -Walter Isle, codirector of the Center for the Study of Environment and Society, Rice University

A stellar group of writers, scientists, and educators illuminate the intersections between environmental science, creative writing, and education, considering ways to strengthen communication between differing fields with common interests. The contributing authors include Ken Brewer, Dan Flores, Hartmut Grassl, Carolyn Tanner Irish, Ted Kerasote, William Kittredge, Ellen Meloy, Louis Owens, Jennifer Price, Robert Michael Pyle, Kent C. Ryden, Annick Smith, Craig B. Stanford, Susan J. Tweit, and Keith Wilson.
