Reviews

Weaving scholarly analysis with interviews of leading black environmentalists and ordinary Americans, Finney traces the environmental legacy of slavery and Jim Crow segregation, which mapped the wilderness as a terrain of extreme terror and struggle for generations of blacks--as well as a place of refuge.--The Boston Globe
Makes a clear case for the dominant culture's habitual (though, sometimes unwitting) rejection of African Americans.--Library Journal Starred Review
A must-read for those who hope to make the parks matter to diverse populations.--Sierra
Finney's exemplary work moves beyond a critique of the movement and popular culture. It carves through multiple layers of meaning to excavate unique moments of African American environmental history that demand retelling.--Choice
Offers an engaging interdisciplinary analysis of the historical conditions that shape the whiteness of 'Nature' in the United States.--American Book Review
