It All Turns on Affection. As biological diversity continues to shrink at an alarming rate, the loss of plant species poses a threat seemingly less visible than the loss of animals but in many ways more critical. Robinson Forest in eastern Kentucky is one of our most important natural landscapes--and one of the most threatened. Covering fourteen thousand acres of some of the most diverse forest region in temperate North America, it is a haven of biological richness within an ever-expanding desert created by mountaintop removal mining.
This biography of Aldo Leopold follows him from his childhood as a precocious naturalist to his profoundly influential role in the development of conservation and modern environmentalism in the United States. This edition includes a new preface by author Curt Meine and an appreciation by acclaimed Kentucky writer and farmer Wendell Berry. Gene Logsdon's The Man Who Created Paradise is a message of hope at a time when the very concept of earth stewardship is under attack.
The fable, inspired by a true story, tells how Wally Spero looked at one of the bleakest places in America--a raw and barren strip-mined landscape--and saw in it his escape from the drudgery of his factory job. The Appalachian mountain range is the oldest in the world and it's disappearing one mountain top at a time.
