Summary Nature's Nation examines our consumer-based industrial and urban society and notes the heavy human and environmental price paid to create this society. Opie places the political, economic, social, and cultural development of America within an environmental framework. Within this framework, students discover the effects 15th-century European philosophies had on conditions in the New World, the effects of westward expansion on America's environment, and connections between other historical events and resulting environmental conditions. Appropriate as a comprehensive textbook for courses in Environmental History, Environmental Studies, American Studies, Geography, and Public Policy departments.
