Dr. Soren Larsen’s summer reading picks

If you’ve climbed all the trees, watched all the movies and swam all the creeks you can handle, maybe it’s time for a good book.  This week, we asked some environmentally minded stars at Mizzou what they suggest for a little summer reading.

Here’s what Dr. Soren Larsen, MU professor of geography, has to share:

Dr. Larsen teaches classes on politics of place; environmental perception and learning; Indigenous, rural & resource-dependent communities

I have two non-fiction books to recommend! The first one is Ingrid Stefanovic’s Safeguarding Our Common Future: Rethinking Sustainable Development (SUNY Press, 2000) and especially for any education majors, David Sobel’s Place-Based Education: Connecting Classrooms and Communities (Orion Press, 2004).

Oh, and on the poetry side, anything by Gary Snyder, especially Riprap and Cold Mountain Poems (Counterpoint Press, 2003).

Hope that helps!
Soren
