Moving Natures: Mobility and the Environment in Canadian History

This collection highlights three quintessentially Canadian themes: seasonality, links between mobility and natural resource development, and urbanites' experiences of the environment through mobility. It divides the intersection of environmental and mobility history into two approaches.
