I highly recommend this excellent literary anthology for anyone interested in the relationship between people and ecology in the American Gulf South from Texas to Florida.

“From lyrical descriptions of ecosystems still largely whole to disturbing accounts of political and corporate malfeasance, this collection provides a panoramic picture of where we are today and how we got here. The inclusion of many voices and perspectives from across the political and demographic spectrum emphasizes how our planetary future depends on a collective vision and communal action.”—Jana M. Giles, University of Louisiana at Monroe
