_DIV__P_Blending memoir, cultural history, and a literary perspective, _I_Facing It_/I_ bears witness to controversies like Tellico and Chernobyl, global warming and local drought. But rather than merely drowning readers in waves of ecological angst, M. Jimmie Killingsworth seeks alternative images and episodes to invoke presence without crippling the hope for survival and sustenance in places and communities of value._/P__P_In deft, highly accessible prose, Killingsworth takes the reader through a Cold-War childhood, an adolescence colored by anti-war and ecological activism, and an adulthood darkened by terrorism and climate change. Inviting us on walks through tame suburbias (riddled with environmental abuse) and wild deserts and mountains (shadowed by industrial development), he celebrates the survival of natural beauty and people living close to the earth while questioning truisms associated with both economic advancement and environmental purity. _/P__P_Above all, this book invites the reader to _I_face it:_/I_ to look with wide-open eyes on a new nature that will never be the same, but that continues to offer opportunities for renewal and advancement of life._/P__/DIV_
