"Peter Matthiessen is, of course, our greatest living prose-poet of landscape, wild creatures, and the fraught relations between humans and the rest of nature. With his expert eye and graceful voice, Matthiessen is the ultimate field trip leader, and this is an elegant, crystalline book." David Quammen.
