About this book

Much of today's interest in the preservation of native American grasslands was sparked by this classic work, first published in 1982 and now available in a revised edition. Madson enlarges his account of prairie restorations and brings the book up to date with a directory of representative tallgrass prairies and lists of prairie nurseries and seed sources. `American buffs and environmentalists of all persuasions should have a well-worn copy of this book in their libraries alongside Thoreau, Burroughs, Muir and Leopold.' Jack DeForest.
