Ecotopia: a novel by Ernest Callenbach

This book, published in 1975, is the author’s vision for a green and sustainable planet.  He frames it in the story of Ecotopia, a collection of Northern California, Oregon, and Washington which have seceded from the United States. It is told through the eyes of an American reporter, the first to be granted entrance to Ecotopia in the 20 years since secession. It is an amazing vision to have had 37+ years ago, and it is sad that it has not manifested in a significant way as yet.
