70s environmentalism wish-fulfillment in all of its decentralized, self-reliant, righteous and crunchy glory. It's much less entertaining than Ecotopia due to all-around boring writing and a plot that skips around far too often. But Callenbach's enthusiasm is infectious, the characters are generally likable and the book gets my west coast jingoism going. Modern environmentalism as a movement could use more of this old-school environmentalism, especially the DIY and local action mindset. Cascadia uber alles!
