About this book

So much has been written about the complexity of environmental issues that we sometimes forget what we are really talking about when we speak of the environment as home. This book dramatically shows us what `home' means by telling the stories of some of the last great intact ecosystems on Earth, places that are home not only to a rich diversity of wildlife and plant life but to a rich diversity of people as well. Travelling from the Florida Keys to the Rio San Padro in Arizona, to the Flying-D Ranch in Montana, and to the islands of Molokai and Palau, with several expeditions to Central and South America, the gifted ecologist and writer David Campbell brings us vivid portraits of places where the needs of humans and the needs of nature are being kept in balance, the kinds of places that we must save and protect if our children are to have a planet they can call home.
