By "the newest name after Wells, Verne, Huxley and Orwell" (Los Angeles Times), Ecotopia is a utopian novel for the new century. The nation formed by seceding states Washington, Oregon and California has achieved the perfect balance between humans and the environment. Now, after 20 years, that nation, Ecotopia, welcomes its first officially sanctioned visitor: U.S. reporter Will Weston. Like a modern Gulliver, the skeptical Weston is by turns impressed, horrified, and overwhelmed by Ecotopia's strange practices. Bombarded by innovative, unsettling ideas, set afire by a relationship with a sexually forthright Ecotopian woman, Weston's conflict of values intensifies and leads to a startling climax.
