Meditations on History, Ecology, and Culture
Eric Zencey - 2000-03-02 (first published in 1998)
Goodreads Rating
"Virgin Forest" by Eric Zencey takes a unique approach to our ecological crisis by examining the historical context. Zencey argues that being out of place in nature is also being out of place in time, and the two exiles are related. The book takes us on a journey to starlit mountaintops, salt marshes, and abandoned mill ponds, showing us a world outside our preconceptions. Zencey's writing is a beautiful mix of autobiography and philosophy-always lyrical and urgent, making a passionate call for ecological health. A must-read for those seeking a grounded ecological sensibility.

Didn't realize that Eric Zencey died last year. RIP. What a remarkable writer, someone I return to again and again, especially Virgin Forest, which is one of my favorite books of all time:      source
