NATURE'S NATION examines our consumer-based industrial and urban society, and comments upon the heavy human and environmental price this society exacts. Opie contextualizes the political, economic, social, and cultural development of America within an environmental framework. Students discover the effects that 15th-century European philosophies have on conditions in the New World, the effects of westward expansion on America's environment, and connections between other historical events and environmental conditions.
