About this book

Northscapes argues that the unique environments of the North have been born of the relationship between humans and nature. Approaching the topic through the lens of environmental history, these essays examine a broad range of geographies, including those of Iceland and other islands in the Northern Atlantic, Sweden, Finland, Russia, the Pacific Northwest, and Canada, over a time span ranging from CE 800 to 2000. Northscapes is bound together by the intellectual project of investigating the North both as an imagined and mythologized space and as an environment shaped by human technology.
