Lissa K. Wadewitz is assistant professor of history and environmental studies at Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon.
"Wadewitz identifies an important environmental historical problem--how people make and challenge boundaries--and situates her investigation in a rich and complex case. It would be hard to imagine a site better suited to a transnational investigation in environmental history than the Salish Sea." Matthew Evenden, author of Fish versus Power: An Environmental History of the Fraser River "An excellent and timely examination of how humans have organized ecological and social space across time, and of the implications of boundary making processes on people and nature alike." Joseph E. Taylor III, author of Making Salmon: An Environmental History of the Northwest Fishery Crisis
