Green City: People, Nature, and Urban Places looks at eleven cities the world over to see how people and nature have interacted over the course of history, and how people attempt to bring nature into cities. In each of these locations, Soderstrom examines how people have tried to make a connection with nature-how well they've done is both a lesson in hope and, often, a warning. Featuring chapters on Babylon, Provins (France), London and Bloomsbury, Hamilton, Chicago, Irvine, Singapore, Tanga (Tanzania), Kochi (India), Shanghai, and São Paulo, as well as recommendations on what must be done so that everyone has a bit of green to call their own. Also includes photographs and extensive notes.
Mary Soderstrom's Green City: People, Nature & Urban Places was selected as one of the Globe and Mail's 100 Best Books of 2007. She is the author of Recreating Eden: A Natural History of Botanical Gardens and The Violets of Usambara. She lives in Montreal.
