"One of the really significant books to have come out of the women's movement." —Mary Daly

"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

"This book is constructively "radical" in that it channels the energy of anger into a probing examination of the roots of patrist violence." —Changing Man

"... 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

This visionary and inspiring book is a cogent analysis of man's use and misuse of his environment and an impassioned plea for a feminist ecological revolution.

An excellent wake-up call and warning that what we do to nature we do to ourselves. Could it be that some men are evolutionarily programmed to self-destruct and carry along the rest of us with them.
