Common Lands, Common People by Richard W. Judd

Book Description

The rise of the conservation ethic in northern New England is the subject of this book. It shows that the movement that eventually took hold throughout America, had its roots among the communitarian ethics of countrypeople, demonstrating the debates over use of, and access to, forests and water. Though originating in utilitarian terms, they held popular notions of properly ordered landscapes, and common rights to nature. The study reveals a complex set of motives and inspirations behind the mid-19th-century drive to conserve natural resources.
