Format: Paperback
Extremely good prose. A poignant testimony to the loss of the Earth's resources in the face of historical and current development. Highly recommend adding this to your book collection if you have any affinity to the natural world.

Time is a precious commodity, and it is hard to find time to do all that must be done. But, the short time that is needed to read this book will be well worth spending.

HASH(0x99f53a5c) out of 5 stars Nine bucks for a 58-page essay on Kindle is way too much money May 2 2013
By annapolis321 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Two decades after the book was published, the concentration of wealth in the hands of the few has grown worse. Today the destruction of the physical world Lopez describes is mirrored in the slow destruction of hope in people.

HASH(0x9a176684) out of 5 stars angry, dazzling - a beacon pointing home July 9 2013
By Nigel Kirk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This brief and dazzling essay plumbs the depths of human selfishness to distill an abiding message for this and all times. Lopez has a distinctive ability to appraise the beauty of nature and culture and to highlight the links between the two which can strengthen us as individuals and societies. The message of biophilia, explored by EO Wilson, has not been articulated more strongly.
