Featured Author: Bill McKibben

Bill McKibbenI was born in 1960, grew up in the suburbs, and wrote for The New Yorker’s quintessentially urban “Talk of the Town” column for five years after graduating from college. But I moved to the Adirondack Mountains, the East’s largest wilderness, in 1987, and there began work on The End of Nature (1989). The first book for a general audience about global warming, it combines reporting on the emerging science with a sometimes despairing meditation on the idea that now no place on earth is beyond the altering touch of humans. In years since, I’ve written many other books and helped organize large-scale demonstrations against global warming.
