An environmental history of the first four national parks in Atlantic Canada: Cape Breton Highlands, Prince Edward Island, Fundy, and Terra Nova.
Alan MacEachern has written an exemplary study of the national parks, exploring the prevailing mid-century definitions of beauty and showing quite wonderfully the interactions between different human agencies with a stake in the definitions, in land management, and in the emerging national park ethic. Robin W. Winks, author of The Civil War Years: Canada and the United States and The Blacks in Canada: A History "A major contribution to the field of environmental history ... Natural Selections is well-grounded in an international and inter-disciplinary field of study that is very much underrepresented in Canada." D.A. Muise, Department of History, Carleton University
