Eco-Fiction

Eco-Fiction

Eco-Fiction is a branch of fiction that focuses on nature-oriented stories. This includes books where the environment is not just the setting, but also a presence or kind of character in and of itself; books where human interests are not the only legitimate concern; and books that deal with the ethics of human interaction and impact on nature. At it's most basic, eco-fiction is about the relationship between the natural world and humans. This often includes Black speculative literature, magical realism, science fiction, books focused on Indigenous communities, historical fiction, poetry, and more.

The Overstory

By Richard Powers
Narrated by: Suzanne Toren
Length: 22 hours 58 minutes

The Overstory

“Do you love trees? Probably not as much as Richard Powers does! This books weaves together the converging stories of nine characters, but they really function as a means to probe the perspective of the trees themselves. With lyrical prose and amazing stories of naturalist history, this is an epic of environmental literature.”

Barkskins

A Novel

By Annie Proulx
Narrated by: Robert Petkoff
Length: 25 hours 53 minutes

Barkskins

“This multigenerational saga follows the fortunes of the Sel and Duke families from early Colonial days to the present, spanning centuries and continents as they make their living not only from the bounty of the land but also from the ravaging and destruction of it. As always, Proulx is brilliant at creating a story that flows impeccably, and her nature writing is some of the most beautiful and evocative to be found in modern literature. This novel is an epic work, a fictional Silent Spring that will linger with readers long after completion.”
