About this book

In this landmark work of environmental history, William Cronon offers an original and profound explanation of the effects European colonists' sense of property and their pursuit of capitalism had upon the ecosystems of New England. Reissued here with an updated afterword by the author and a new preface by the distinguished colonialist John Demos, Changes in the Land: Indians, Colonists, and the Ecology of New England, provides a brilliant inter-disciplinary interpretation of how land and people influence one another.
