I have a few minor questions that the author did not answer completely but this is a masterful work exposing the movement to return the earth to a state untouched by man. Much has to do with the belligerence of the "Island Trust" group, in control of the gulf island in the Strait of Georgia, between Vancouver and Vancouver Island on Canada's west coast. Her problems with trying to subdivide a 30 acre parcel of land lead her on a journey through the entire west coast of the USA following the 'ret ...more

This book exposes and provides details of the efforts of radical environmentalists to drive residents out of rural areas into cities where they can be more easily controlled. There are many nonsensical and onerous rules and regulations concerning the use of one's private property. The Wildlands Project seeks to provide a corridor for wild animals by removing people and "restoring wilderness". This is an important book to read. Chances are unless you already live in a city, worship Gaia, and feel ...more

Very apt title. Nickson chronicles the growth of the environmental movement and aligns its furtive redistribution of wealth, property and land rights with tactics characteristic of totalitarian governments.

American Journalist buys land in Canada and is disappointed to find out that she must abide by the laws in that country. This book is unintentionally a lesson in the attitudes and assumptions of the excessively privileged.

She chronicles her difficulties dealing with the local trust of the islands where she wants to develop her property, and how their environmental regulations make this difficult. Fair enough to argue that the regulations In this specific place are too strict and why you think so, but to turn that into a conspiracy that somehow environmentalists have taken over the whole government is pretty absurd. The book is full of seemingly made up stats that are clearly exaggerated and easy to fact-check. He ...more

The author stated on page xiv that the title “Eco-Fascists” was not intended “…as a banner to grab attention…”, but that’s what made me take it down from the bookstore shelf. The language sometimes seemed purposefully inflammatory without conveying any useful information. The myriad of stories were difficult to follow and made the book seem disjointed. I do appreciate the author’s passion for the subject and prodigious amount a research. The notes and bibliography enable readers to do more in de ...more

I couldn't even get through the first chapter. After the diatribe about crystal meth, Russian corpse wolves and Tom Cruise I decided that any other use of my time was better than reading this wacky book. ...more

Great book that is both personal, and informational. And does a good job balancing the Two.
