World Environmental History textbook

Hi all,

I'll be teaching a semester-long environmental history elective to advanced high school juniors and seniors next year and am curious if anybody has suggestions for accessible texts that focus on world environmental history? I'm interested either in traditional textbooks or in monographs/collections/readers that you think would be helpful. Grateful for any suggestions people have.

Thank you,

Michael Kideckel
