Environmental activists and the conservation-minded will find new inspiration this Earth Day, April 22nd, when The Library of America releases the first definitive anthology of American environmental writing: AMERICAN EARTH: Environmental Writing Since Thoreau, edited by Bill McKibben with a foreword by Al Gore.

“If you had to choose but one environmental book this season, make it American Earth.”
~ Booklist (starred review)

“Thanks to American Earth, I know the passion of these writers will continue inspiring Americans to protect our country for generations to come.”
~ Carol Browner, Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (1993-2001)

“Superb. . . . American Earth can be read as a survey of the literature of American environmentalism, but above all, it should be enjoyed for the sheer beauty of the writing.”
~ Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
