The Call of the Green, by Albena Bakratcheva.
Thoreau and Place-Sense in American Writing.
Faber Publishers, 2009.  Hard Cover, 6 x 9 inch format, 230 pp.
"Albena Bakratcheva is Professor of American Literature and American Studies at New Bulgarian University, Sofia, Bulgaria, and the Chair of the American and British Studies Program.  In 2007 she obtained the honorary academic degree of Doctor of Letters (D.Litt.)."

"This book focuses on the unique inbetweenness of the perceiver/settler and the place that has always unfolded in American literature. The author's (unavoidable) European background only emphasizes the place-sense perspective as particularly adequate toward post-European settlers' writing. Such an awareness brings pleasing Emersonian "plasticity" to the critical task and makesits impossible completion quite a challenging intellectual temptation, to which the book gladly yields. " (from the preface)
