Weyerhaeuser Environmental Books
Pumpkin is a part of the series of Weyerhaeuser Environmental Books. This series by the University of Washington Press explores human relationships with natural environments in all their variety and complexity. They seek to cast new light on the ways that natural systems affect human communities, the ways that people affect the environments of which they are a part, and the ways that different cultural conceptions of nature profoundly shape our sense of the world around us.
The Weyerhaeuser Environmental Book series is edited by William Cronon, Frederick Jackson Turner and Vilas Research Professor of History, Geography, and Environmental Studies, University of Wisconsin - Madison.
