Converging stories : race, ecology, and environmental justice in American literature

"Jeffrey Myers's new study broadens the fields of race and ecology by looking at writings from the nineteenth century - an era of renewed violence and oppression against people of color and of unprecedented environmental destruction on a continental scale. Myers focuses particularly on works that engage the notion that white racism and alienation from nature sprang from a common source."
