The remarkable breadth of C. S. Lewis's (1898--1963) work is nearly as legendary as the fantastical tales he so inventively crafted.

I have read all of C.S. Lewis' books and about 40 commentaries. This is the first that looks carefully at the environmental vision in The Chronicles of Narnia and the Space Trilogy.
