Glave, Dianne D. and Mark Stoll, eds. To Love the Wind and the Rain: African Americans and Environmental History. Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 2011.

To Love the Wind and the Rain is an analysis of the relationship between African Americans and the environment in US history. It focuses on three major themes: African Americans in the rural environment, African Americans in the urban and suburban environments, and African Americans and the notion of environmental justice. The essays cover subjects including slavery, hunting, gardening, religion, the turpentine industry, outdoor recreation, women, and politics. To Love the Wind and the Rain can serve as a foundation for future studies in African American environmental history. (Text adapted from the University of Pittsburgh Press website.)
