Profitably soaked : Thoreau`s engagement with water by R. L France( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hoping to dispel the dull and dry images of Henry David Thoreau as the moping, detached intellectual or the reflective nature mystic, this collection of quotations counters that prevalent view by nearly resurrecting Thoreau and bringing him back to the life that he so fully lived. This work clearly demonstrates that Thoreau was very much the thristing sensualist, using his body at every opportunity as a way to engage the world. And it was water above all else, the volume claims, that allowed Thoreau's deepest immersion into nature

Leave no trace : the vanishing North American wilderness by Jim Wark( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

North America's pristine, remote, and very much endangered lands as seen through the award-winning aerial photography of Jim Wark. The expanse of North America seems boundless, and its wild lands encompass some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Though timeless in their majesty, some areas are at risk of vanishing or changing forever, and Jim Wark's passion is to capture many of these beautiful regions before they are developed or environmentally impacted-and lost. From the lush coasts of the Great Lakes to the jagged peaks of the Rocky Mountains, from the deep crevasses of Utah's Canyonlands to the picturesque valleys of the Appalachians, this breathtaking volume captures these remote gems with glorious vistas and unique and detailed perspectives only available from the air. Piloting his high-wing bush plane for unobstructed camera work and unique low-level angles, Wark's artistic eye for detail makes this book an incomparable trip to the last North American wildernesses

Nature in world development : patterns in the preservation of scenic and outdoor recreation resources by Roderick Nash( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report reviews the problems of protecting nature in a heavily industrialized democracy such as the United States. Factors contributing to the establishment of protected areas in the United States are traced from the creation of Yellowstone National Park in 1872 to the present. Arguments in defense of wilderness areas consider nature as: (1) a reservoir of normal ecological processes, (2) a sustainer of biological diversity, (3) a formative influence on the national character, (4) a church, (5) a guardian of mental health, and (6) an educational asset in developing environmental responsibility. Diverse agencies, programs, and efforts exist at all levels. The National Park Service, the United States Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the National Wilderness Preservation System function on the federal level. Coastal zone management and land use laws protect natural areas on the state level, city and county parks serve as protected areas on local levels, and private organizations such as the Sierra Club also contribute to wilderness preservation. Problems arise from the conflict between economic development and nature preservation, and the popularity of nature areas which leads to their destruction. Programs in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, East Africa, Europe, the Soviet Union, and Canada are also described. (Kc)
