Book Review: Getting Over the Color Green

Getting Over the Color Green

Slovic, Scott, ed

University of Arizona Press, Tucson, 2001

An anthology of contemporary (but is 2001 contemporary still contemporary now?) environmental literature of the southwest.  It is broken into a few sections – natural history, adventures in the wild, living close to the land, voices of conservation – and the majority of selected essays / short stories fit well within it.  A few are a bit hard to classify as overly sitting in the theme, but that will be the case for pretty much any anthology.  The combining aspect is, pretty much as per the title, recognizing that just because the land isn’t green for most of the year that it is still land that needs to be respected and taken care of.
