Around the Campfire by Dave Foreman
"Nearly twenty-five years ago, I started writing a regular column called “Around the Campfire” for The Earth First! Journal, which I then edited. I first wrote it on a mechanical typewriter. With the breakup of Earth First! in 1990, John Davis and I launched Wild Earth, and I continued “Around the Campfire.” The Wildlands Project discontinued Wild Earth years ago for lack of funding, and Campfire lost a home." ~Dave Foreman
Dave Foreman on the origins of Around The Campfire...
During the quarter century of Campfire, I’ve tried to educate, provoke, and activate conservationists on a sweeping range of ideas, issues, and subjects. Material from Campfire has gone into my books, Confessions of an Eco-Warrior, The Big Outside, Rewilding North America, and the forthcoming The Myth(s) of the Environmental Movement. I’ve meant Campfire as a broadside of yore, such as Tom Paine and other patriots wrote during the War for Independence. (Read more about Around the Campfire...)
