Colorado State University (Fort Collins) History Professor Mark Fiege, and University of Wisconsin-Madison History Professor William Cronon specialize in teaching and writing about history as it is influenced by the environment.  In this American History TV interview, they discuss Fiege's book, "The Republic of Nature," and they explain and define the growing field of environmental history.  The interview was recorded at the annual meeting of the Organization of American Historians.
