About this product
- DescriptionTrail of Story, Traveller's Path examines the meaning of landscape, drawn from Leslie Main Johnson's rich experience with diverse environments and peoples, including the Gitksan and Witsuwit'en of rthwestern British Columbia, the Kaska Dene of the southern Yukon, and the Gwich'in of the Mackenzie Delta. With passion and conviction, Johnson maintains that our response to our environment shapes our culture, determines our lifestyle, defines our identity, and sets the tone for our relationships and ecomies. She documents the landscape and contrasts the ecological relationships with land of First Nations peoples to those of n-indigeus scientists. The result is an absorbing study of local kwledge of place and a broad exploration of the meaning of landscape.
