The Environment in Modern North America places the environment at the center of the historical conversation. From histories of place to explorations of current environmental issues, problems, and policies, volumes in this series will reflect innovative examinations of a wide range of topics and environmental trends. Works in this series will chronicle the stories of people and the places in which they live, and the ways in which they have engaged with and affected the environments around them. Focused primarily, but not exclusively, on the 20th century, this new series looks to environmental history to put the natural world in conversation with human endeavors. Immersing readers in both the landscape and the stories of places and people, we seek topics that touch readers where they live and work.
