Everybody's Ecology. A Field Guide to Pleasure and Perception in the Out-of-Doors.
Schoenfeld, Clay
This primer of ecological principles serves as a practical guide to pleasure and perception in the out-of-doors-pleasure in the simple values and rustic charms of outdoor recreation and in an ecological understanding of the great web of life; and perception of our beautiful yet threatened environment and of the individual practices and policies that can preserve and enhance our natural inheritance. Using the language of ecology to illuminate the enjoyment, appreciation, and conservation of natural processes, the author shows how we can enjoy the outdoors to the maximum, at the same time preserving the land, fields, and streams that are invaluable to our planet. The book is a series of sketches about hunting and fishing, hiking and touring, camping and cabins, scenery and sewage, cityscape and countryside. It discusses citizens in action in environmental management, and the ecological rules of the game. An amusing and salient feature is an imaginary set of reports from Sammy the Squirrel, an unusual animal who leaves his woodlot to go to the capital as a lobbyist for conservation. Through his eyes one gets a comical yet thoughtful view of the oneness of man and environment. (BL)
