Myths of Wilderness in Contemporary Narratives :
The concept of "wilderness" as a foundational idea for environmentalist thought and writing has become the subject of vigorous debates over the last two decades. This book offers a carefully articulated taxonomy of the forms that wilderness writing has taken in recent Australian and Canadian literature, expanding on this work in unusual ways by re-emphasizing both country's origins as colonies. In its combination of ecocriticism, postcolonialism, and cultural geography, Crane makes an important and original contribution to current ecocritical research.
