Originally from England, Christopher Preston moved to the US in the 1990s for graduate school. He has lived most of those years in the West, where he enjoys the abundant wildlife and the outdoor activities permitted by the roomy landscapes. His work has appeared in The Atlantic, Smithsonian Magazine, Discover, Aeon and The BBC. His books and journal articles explore technology, wildlife, climate change, justice, and numerous other topics in environmental philosophy. His previous book, "The Synthetic Age," lamented the takeover of the natural world with technology. His new book, "Tenacious Beasts," investigates an alternative vision where threatened animals are recovering and reclaiming their place on the landscape.
