About this book

Roderick Nash's classic study of the changing attitudes toward wilderness during America's history, and the beginnings of movements for environmentalism and conservation, has received wide acclaim since its initial publication in 1967. The Los Angeles Times has listed it among the one hundred most influential books published in the last quarter century, Outside Magazine has included it in a survey of "books that changed our world," and it has been called the "Book of Genesis for environmentalists." Now a fourth edition of this highly regarded work is available, with a new preface and epilogue in which Nash explores the future of wilderness and reflects on its ethical and biocentric relevance

Media reviews

"Wilderness and the American Mind is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand wilderness and the American conservation movement. It is a peerless work and irreplaceable for everyone who cares for Nature."
– Dave Foreman, Chairman, Wildlands Project

"In this important and influential work, Roderick Nash explains the origin of the wilderness concept and the role it plays in the evolution of environmentalism. Americans in particular need this historical perspective to come to grips with their relation to nature and hence to the whole, real world."
– Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University
