Down to Earth

Down to Earth

Ted Steinberg

“In this ambitious and provocative text, environmental historian Ted Steinberg offers a sweeping history of the United States–a history that places the environment at the very center of the narrative. Now in a new edition, DOWN TO EARTH re-envisions the story of America ‘from the ground up.’ It reveals how focusing on plants, animals, climate, and other ecological factors can radically change the way that we think about the past.” [8]
