Product Description

Review

"This is a fine piece of scholarship and a wonderful handling of the topic. It makes a very significant contribution to the field, both by demonstrating to environmental historians that Northern topics are of broader interest and by providing Northern historians with an impressively detailed illustration of the importance of environmental perspectives. - Ken Coates, Professor of History and Dean of Arts at the University of Waterloo"

From the Inside Flap

This study of the history of human impact upon the North provides a baseline, grounded in historical and scientific evidence, for measuring environmental change in the Subarctic. Piper examines the sustainability of industrial economies, the value of resource exploitation in volatile ecosystems, and the human consequences of northern environmental change. She also addresses northern communities' historical resistance to external resource development and their fight for survival in the face of intensifying environmental and economic pressures.
