Everything you need to understand or teach Ecotopia by Ernest Callenbach.
Earnest Callenbach's Ecotopia is a small country made up of what used to be Washington, Oregon, and Northern California. The story takes place in 1999, which is twenty-five years after it was written, in 1974. In the story, Ecotopia has been an independent nation for nineteen years, and most Americans, including the United States government, still do not know much of anything about their northwestern neighbor. The Ecotopians are secretive and cut off from their American counterparts and this has bred hostility from many on both sides of the border. The Times-Post of New York, with the approval of the president of the United States, sends William Weston, an internal affairs reporter, to Ecotopia to write a story explaining what is going on in Ecotopia. This book is structured as a collection of reports sent to the Times-Post for his story and entries from his personal diary.
