Women Environmental/Ecological Writers, Fiction, Non-fiction & Poetry/Prose

Dedicated to Southwest Dude: the origin of this list is based on a Goodreads discussion regarding the FACT that most environmental/ecology books (or all books really) are authored by men. I was asked to provide a list of great, memorable, ground-breaking (literally/figuratively), edgy, political--otherwise memorable ecological/environmental books written by women. Let's do it!
