“A long overdue and valuable contribution to ecofeminist studies.”--Cheryll Glotfelty, editor of The Ecocriticism Reader: Landmarks in Literary Ecology

“An outstanding contribution to the developing field of ecofeminism. It will be as useful to those who have been looking for a good text on which to base a course in ecofeminist literary criticism as it will be to those who wonder what the field is all about. Taken together, these essays suggest the range of connections and possibilities implicit in ecofeminist literary criticism--connections, for example, between spirituality and science, ecology and literature, or environmental activism and literary theory.”--Carol H. Cantrell, Colorado State University
