"Rape of the Wild is a bold work that stress[es] the absolute necessity of kinship with nature and all forms of life." —Animal's Agenda

" . . . a welcome addition to ecofeminist literature . . . " —Feminist for Animal Rights

"Rape of the Wild is a very moving, passionately written expose of men's subjugation and exploitation of the natural environment and of women." —Forest History Society
