One of the collection's most valuable elements ... is that it refuses to reduce Alberta's relationship with the Anthropocene to oil and gas extraction.... Collectively, Found in Alberta's essays ... offer an arguably more holistic overview that includes industrial and hunting food cultures, shifting concepts of wilderness, trans-Canadian narratives of nationhood, and the legal protection extended to certain economies, values, and aesthetics.--L.
