The Eclectically-Read Environmentalist

A Listmania! list by Christopher Hayes "Safety-Man" (Hartford, CT United States)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Some of the classics, some of the not so classics, some that you never knew were environmentalist, and an X-Box game for fun."
The Monkey Wrench Gang (P.S.)
1.  The Monkey Wrench Gang (P.S.) by Edward Abbey
The list author says:
  "The quintessential angry environmentalist novel which follows the motivation, creation, and actions of a cell of eco-warriors.  Also, very funny.  You’ll never think of Baskin-Robbins the same."
$12.88   Used & New from: $4.69
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (183 customer reviews)

Ecotopia
2.  Ecotopia by Ernest Callenbach
The list author says:
  "Written in the 1970's, a look at the distant year of 1999 when the Pacific Northwest formed a new sustainable nation, Ecotopia.  Decent story, but more of a mouthpiece for Callenbach's at-the-time crazy ideas like recycling and public transportation."
$12.50   Used & New from: $5.46
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (81 customer reviews)

Zodiac
3.  Zodiac by Neal Stephenson
$11.83   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (134 customer reviews)

Hayduke Lives!: A Novel
4.  Hayduke Lives!: A Novel by Edward Abbey
The list author says:
  "A follow-up to The Monkey Wrench Gang with more green mayhem, culminating in a scathing critique of the contemporary environmentalist movement."
$14.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Concrete : Think Like a Mountain
5.  Concrete : Think Like a Mountain by Paul Chadwick
The list author says:
  "Sort of a primer for direct action environmentalists, as told by a disembodied brain trapped in a giant concrete golem."
Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Man and Nature: Or Physical Geography As Modified By Human Action (Classic Reprint)
6.  Man and Nature: Or Physical Geography As Modified By Human Action (Classic Reprint) by George Perkins Marsh
The list author says:
  "One of the earlier true environmentalist books, written by the 1860's US ambassador to Italy who saw the once lush, now eroded hills of Greece looking surprisingly like the quickly deforested hills of his native Vermont (back when Vermont was down to 5% forest, instead of today's 95% forest)."
Used & New from: $105.68
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Powersat
7.  Powersat by Ben Bova
The list author says:
  "The chronological start of Bova's Grand Tour series, filled with enterprising, green, capitalist, astronaut heroes.  More readable and a lot less depressing than the sequel, Empire Builders."
$7.19   Used & New from: $0.01
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews)

Fight Club: A Novel
8.  Fight Club: A Novel by Chuck Palahniuk
The list author says:
  "Most people have only seen the movie, not read the book.  The movie gets most of the book dead on, but leaves out the long return to nature passages that are strewn throughout the novel.  Those alone are worth the read."
$8.44   Used & New from: $3.63
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,091 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Pacific Edge: Three Californias (Wild Shore Triptych)
9.  Pacific Edge: Three Californias (Wild Shore Triptych) by Kim Stanley Robinson
$13.82   Used & New from: $3.73
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Swamp Thing Vol. 1: Saga of the Swamp Thing
10.  Swamp Thing Vol. 1: Saga of the Swamp Thing by Alan Moore
Used & New from: $8.81
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (48 customer reviews)

Red Faction Guerrilla - Xbox 360
11.  Red Faction Guerrilla - Xbox 360 by Nordic Games
The list author says:
  "No doubt after reading all of this you will want to go smash the state, as well as some earth moving equipment.  This game, about a group of Martian revolutionary colonists, miners, and mechanics, is about as close to "Monkey Wrench Gang- the Game" as you can find for your game system.  Very cathartic."
$18.95   Used & New from: $3.00
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (107 customer reviews) | 11 customer discussions

March Upcountry
12.  March Upcountry by David Weber
The list author says:
  "The first of several books that mix military sci-fi adventure with right wing politics, using extreme environmentalists (the Green Saints) as an occasional villain.  Fascinating look good intentions gone too far, plus there are Greenpeace Commandos!"
$7.19   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (82 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

The Way West
13.  The Way West by A. B. Guthrie
The list author says:
  "Beautiful, dense writing packed with we would now call neo-primitivist lament for simpler times."
$12.13   Used & New from: $2.02
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews)

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail
14.  A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson
The list author says:
  "Surprising amounts of green rage, particularly pointed at the US Forest Service (aka Forestry Service)."
$5.03   Used & New from: $1.04
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2,105 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions
