Environmental books that have influenced me in my lifetime: Part III

April 27, 2023

In February, I made a series of posts about books on racism and the Black Freedom Struggle that have influenced me, which was followed by a series of posts in March about books on feminism that have influenced me as well. 

This month I want to include three posts about books on the environment that have influenced how I view with the world around me. In Part I, I focused on books I read in the 1980s and 1990s that initially radicalized me about how I view being part of the natural world. In Part II, I focused on books that I read in the 2000s, and in today’s post I will focus on environmental books that I’ve read over the last decade and have had a significant influence in how I think.

Here are those books that influenced my thinking at that time:
