I gave up on this book. Partly it just didn't capture my attention, but mainly I was put off by the repeated lazy assertions that all of natures woes are due to the Christian faith. Yes, the command to rule over the world has been misrepresented as justification for destroying natural habitats, but that is significantly in the past, and says more about human nature than orthodox Christian doctrine. There was no mention of the great role played by the individual faith of many great naturalists, only the simplistic view that ruling over means destroying rather than protecting. I had high hopes for this book but couldn't get past the first few chapters. ( )

Epigraph
What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and wildness? Let them be left,
O let them be left, wildness and wet;
Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.

Gerard Manley Hopkins, 'Inversnaid'
Dedication
To the memory of Norah
