Nikiforuk's frame of linking fossil fuel use and servitude is excellent and bears repeating. It is is not sufficient for an entire book, though, so I I skimmed through most of it after the first chapter or two.

Wow, great read heartbreaking and life-affirming at the same time. Nikiforuk really brings out the complexity of the beetle-tree interaction and tries to disabuse us of the notion that we can control ecosystems.

Anyone who is interested in what the Alberta Tar Sands are doing to the environment must read this book. Nikiforuk meticulously, and with excellent references, tracks the history of Tar Sands development, the ridiculous waste of resources and the outsized environmental footprint of the ever expanding operation.
