A Storied Wilderness: Rewilding the Apostle Islands by James Feldman is an examination of the unique intersection of human activity, the physical environment, and the changing values we place on each of them. The book tells the history of people's interaction with the Apostle Islands, from living on the islands and extracting resources--and as a result forever changing the natural environment--to the later regeneration of forest lands and the islands becoming part of the national park system. Reviewer and author James Morton Turner calls Feldman's book, "at once a model of local environmental history and a superb history of the conceptual and political landscape of wilderness."
Feldman is Associate Professor of History and Environmental Studies at UW-Oshkosh. He received his PhD from UW-Madison in 2004.
