A non fiction book by

 
 
Most of us watch with mild concern the fast disappearing wild spaces or the recurrence of pollution related crises such as oil spills, toxic blooms in fertilizerenriched rivers, and the increasing violence in our own country. Joy Williams does much more than watch. With guts and passion, she sounds the alarm over the general disconnection from the natural world that our consumer culture has created. The culling of elephants, electronprobed chimpanzees, and the vanishing wetlands are just some of her subjects. Razorsharp, controversial, scathingly opinionated, and refreshingly unafraid of conflict, Williams refuses to compromise as she lashes out at the greed of Americans and decries our own turpitude. It is not enough to mourn the passing of the natural world, Ill Nature shouts. Get out of our homes and our cars and our cubicles and do something. . .now.
