What Reviewers Are Saying
"What then has happened to urban people? Why do we pollute? Why are we so complacent about the rape of the earth, the collapse of soils, the plundering of the seas?...Have we lost touch with the reality of what lies beyond the urban edge - the fields upon which we are so utterly dependent?" Coming Back to Earth, 2002.
