Bill McKibben is the author of numerous bestselling books on the environment, including The End of Nature (1989), the first book to alert general readers to the climate crisis. His new book is The Flag, theCross, and the Station Wagon: A Graying American Looks Back at His Suburban Boyhood and Wonders What the Hell Happened (2022), a reflection on disturbing developments in the nature of American patriotism, faith, and prosperity.
U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said, “If we survive the interlocking plagues of climate change, right-wing authoritarianism, and savage inequality, future generations will utter the name of the New England moral visionary and activist McKibben with the reverence we speak of Emerson, Thoreau, and Garrison.”
