'Landscapes of Retreat' are portraits of climate adaptation. Retreat is found in the land that is left behind as settlement patterns shift due to a changing climate. The term landscape refers to the earth animated by the aliveness of creatures and organisms, and the term retreat suggests that human patterns are not fixed. The stories in this book suggest that communities are more likely to adapt to change when the landscape is appreciated. The results cut across history, fieldwork, citizenship, and geography in order to rethink and rework "change" as a means toward shared climate futures.
