Niel Evernden's essay (included in this anthology) completely changed the trajectory of the course I taught on ecocriticsm. The concept of "interconnectedness" and Evernden's metaphor of the fish in his environment gave my students a suitably complex yet direct mechanism by which to understand what ecocriticsm does, and what its object/objective is.

The other articles included in the book are useful as well -- William Reuckert and William Howarth we also read in class, and I found the Bakhtinian analysis of place included at the end of the book to be very useful to my own research -- and in general it is a masterful collection of the fundamentals of ecocriticism as a literary/political analytical stance.

I would have my students purchase this as their accompanying text, should I teach the ecocriticsm class again, and would probably have them read at least 60% of the articles included.

This was given to me as a gift and I would say is a great gift for any true Nevada-lovers. Don't get me wrong, there were parts of this book that took effort to read, and I read this book off and on since June.

This self-titled 'literary history' of Nevada is just that--a chronological look at the tales told in Nevada by Nevada authors or authors passing through this great state. The book starts with the first people of Nevada--Native Americans--and their stories, continues to the gold and silver booms, and into contemporary writing. Once caught up to the present, the author shifts to topics: poetry, fiction, writings about Reno, writings about Vegas (and everything in between--the majority of the physical state), writings about 'Nuclear Nevada. Tales of Area 51 aren't to be left out either!

I enjoyed this book--regardless of how long it took me to get through it!
