The geography of childhood : why children need wild places by Gary Paul Nabhan( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and Chinese and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this unique collaboration, naturalists Gary Nabhan and Stephen Trimble investigate how children come to care deeply about the natural world. They ask searching questions about what may happen to children denied exposure to wild places - a reality for more children today than at any time in human history. The authors remember pivotal events in their own childhood that led each to a life-long relationship with the land: Nabhan's wanderings in the wasteland of steel mills and power plants of Gary, Indiana, and in the Indiana Dunes; Trimble's travels in the West with a geologist father. They tell stories of children learning about wild places and creatures in settings ranging from cities and suburbs to isolated Nevada sheep ranches to Native American communities in the Southwest and Mexico. The Geography of Childhood draws insights from fields as various as evolutionary biology, child psychology, education, and ethnography. The book urges adults to rethink our children's contact with nature. Small children have less need for large-scale wilderness than for a garden, gully, or field to create a crucial tie to the natural world. Nabhan suggests that traditional wilderness-oriented rites of passage may help cure the alienation of adolescence: "Those who as adolescents fail to pass through such rites remain in an arrested state of immaturity for the remainder of their lives." Trimble's fatherhood leads him to question how we grant different freedoms to girls and boys in their exploration of nature - and how this bias powerfully affects adult lives. Both authors return to their experiences with indigenous peoples to show how nature is taught and wilderness understood in cultures historically grounded outside of America's cities and suburbs. The Geography of Childhood makes clear how human growth remains rooted, as it always has, both in childhood and in wild landscapes. It is an essential book for all parents and teachers who wonder what our children may miss if they never experience local wildlife or wild landscapes
Words from the land : encounters with natural history writing( Book )

8 editions published between 1988 and 1995 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Words From the Land spans the full range of the contemporary nature writing genre. In this expanded edition, Stephen Trimble adds five writers to the fifteen included in the original edition, including selections both from well-known masters and from vital new writers who focus on our relationship with the earth. A new preface brings his critical commentary up to date. In his fascinating introduction, and in biographical sketches of each contributor, Trimble illuminates the practice and spirit of this work, the fruit of 'the naturalist's trance'. Trimble explores how the writers learn their profession, how they meet day-by-day challenges, and how they feel about their craft. The interaction between the essays and the introduction provides an unusual perspective on these writers who connect the worlds of story and landscape."--Publisher's description

Bargaining for Eden : the fight for the last open spaces in America by Stephen Trimble( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with an Olympic ski race in northern Utah, this heartfelt book from award-winning writer and photographer Stephen Trimble takes a penetrating look at the battles raging over the land - and the soul - of the American West. Bargaining for Eden investigates the high-profile story of a reclusive billionaire who worked relentlessly to acquire public land for his ski resort and to host the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. In a gripping, character-driven narrative, based on extensive interviews, Trimble tells of the land exchange deal that ensued, one of the largest and most controversial in U.S. history, as he deftly explores the inner conflicts, paradoxes, and greed at the heart of land-use disputes from the back rooms of Washington to the grassroots efforts of passionate citizens." "Into this mix, Trimble weaves the personal story of how he, a lifelong environmentalist, ironically became a landowner and developer himself, and began to explore the ethics of ownership anew. We travel with Trimble in a journey that becomes, in the end, a hopeful credo to guide citizens and communities seeking to reinvent their relationship with the beloved American landscape."--Jacket

Our voices, our land : based on an audio-visual show created for the Heard Museum, Phoenix, Arizona by Stephen Trimble( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'SCIIENCE 85' called the audio-visual presentation of 'Our Voices, Our Land' at The Heard Museum, Phoenix, 'Awesome.' This program, an emotional experience that has captured the hearts of viewers, is an almost overwhelming collage of faces, landscape, and words that brings to life Southwest Indian people. Native Americans have applauded it. Now, to reach a much wider audience, the show has been distilled by its creators in this book. The Indian people themselves do the speaking here. Their voices come from ten tribes in Arizona and northern New Mexico: elders, teenagers, medicine women, artists, tribal chairmen, teachers; a cross section of contemporary Indian people of the Southwest. They speak about everything of conce3rn in their lives: the past, the present, and the future. In doing so, they eloquently communicate their complexity, vitality, and grace. From Monument Valley to the saguaro cacti of the Sonoran Desert, from the Pueblo villages around Santa Fe to the Grand Canyon. Carefully chosen black-and-white photos provide contrast and historical

Earthtones : a Nevada album by Ann Ronald( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Too many visitors to the Silver State never see Ann Ronald and Stephen Trimble's Nevada: teal sky and a sea of purple sage, mountain mahogany and a crimson mass of claret cup cactus, a dust-blown sunset of vermilion, orange, and gold. More colorful than a neon display on Las Vegas Boulevard, Nevada is one vast landscape of tint and shadow and aesthetic dimension. In Earthtones, Ronald and Trimble provide a guide to understanding a challenging landscape. Their love for the land shines through in six vivid personal essays and sixty-seven boldly emotional color photographs. In independent but interwoven visions, Ronald and Trimble cherish the same Nevada, an astonishing place to anyone familiar with the mistaken stereotypes Nevada suffers. After sharing the surprises of this collaboration, readers too will cherish a Nevada filled with earthtone treasures
