              Reflects on the twin motivations of the author's life - the commitment to do some good in the world and the impulse to enjoy life and participate fully in its most intense moments - and examines the tension created by his efforts to balance these two poles of his responsibility.

              Although formally named in 1978 and officially recognized as a burgeoning discipline in the early 1990s, the field of ecocriticism (environmental approaches to textual analysis and cultural studies) has actually existed for a very long time, perhaps dating back to the earliest co...mmentaries on natural themes in ancient sacred texts. The environmental approach to literature-and soon thereafter to other artistic media and popular culture-began to receive widespread public attention in the mid-1990s. For many years, ecocriticism and environmental communication studies have co-existed as parallel disciplines, occasionally crossing paths but typically operating in separate academic spheres. The fields of ecocriticism and environmental communication studies are now rapidly converging, and this handbook aims to reinforce the common concerns and methodologies of the sibling disciplines. This handbook charts the history of the relationship between ecocriticism and environmental communication studies, while also highlighting key new paradigms in information studies, diverse examples of practical applications of environmental communication and textual analysis, and the patterns and challenges of environmental communication in non-Western societies. Contributors to this book will include literary scholars and film scholars, communication studies specialists, environmental historians, religious studies scholars, practicing journalists, art critics, linguists, ethnographers, economists, and others, but all will focus their discussions on key issues in textual representations of human-nature relationships and on the challenges and possibilities of environmental communication. The handbook is designed to map existing trends in both ecocriticism and environmental communication and to predict future directions (or, rather, an increasingly unified direction as the fields increasingly overlap). This book will be an essential reference for teachers, students, and practitioners of environ

              Desert vistas are often deemed vacant, inhospitable wastelands. Don't suggest that to Joy Harjo, Pat Mora, or other contemporary southwestern writers. In these arid stretches, often devoid of green, today's southwestern writers see pyrotechnic colors and Gothic shapes that excite... and often overwhelm the imagination. And they capture this excitement in words that fix these desert images in the minds of readers who may too often look at the world through green-colored glasses. This anthology of contemporary nature writing from the Greater Southwest brings together a host of writers including peers of Edward Abbey such as Charles Bowden and Ann Zwinger and representatives of a new generation of writers such as Rick Bass and Terry Tempest Williams. The book is an eclectic blend of nonfiction and fiction, field notes and poetry, through which artists of diverse backgrounds both celebrate and illuminate the unique vitality and complexity of southwestern literature proving that green is only one of many colors on their palette. The selections included here range all across the southwestern landscape and explore adventures in the wild, topics in natural history, living close to the land, and efforts at conservation and restoration. They clearly demonstrate that there is grace and beauty in this often-maligned part of the world both in the human traditions that have developed in the region and in the natural features of the desert itself.
