Land and Sea
Environmental History In Atlantic Canada
Editor : Claire Campbell, Robert Summerby-Murray,
Publisher: Acadiensis Press
An original exploration of the relationship between people and the environment in Atlantic Canada, from the native-settler interactions of the 17th century to the presentday challenges of resource depletion and economic renewal. Major themes focus on how people have explained and understood the natural world, what we have learned from experiments in conservation and management, and how we have responded to environmental crisis and change. This wide-ranging collection features contributors from all four provinces and beyond, and is edited and introduced by Claire Campbell and Robert Summerby-Murray of Dalhousie University. The final chapter is an eloquent survey of the region’s environmental history by the distinguished historical geographer Graeme Wynn, University of British Columbia.
