Product Description

Review

Liza Piper captures with detail and insight an essential episode in northern environmental history ... in telling this story Piper provides an immensely valuable perspective not just on northern history, but on the practice of environmental history itself ... she also exhibits an impressive sensitivity for the meanings embedded in both action and language. But where she especially excels is in situating this history in a specific place, and in invoking its material basis in living organisms: lakes and rivers, water and ice, earth and fire. This history has dirt under its fingernails. -- Stephen Bocking Northern Review, Fall 2009

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.
