MEDIA REVIEWS
"Like a prairie's landscape, these essays, together with the photographs, visual art, and illustrations, present a dense and varied interconnected whole, from roots to flowers to the beings who perceive and inhabit the land."
--Annick Smith, filmmaker and author of Big Bluestem: Journey into the Tall Grass

"Prairie enthusiasts will be delighted to read how diverse and interesting the human meanings of the prairie have been. Recovering the Prairie is attractive, accessible, and eloquent."
--Donald Worster, author of Nature's Economy
"I do not know of another book that brings together individuals from so many fields to meditate on the prairie landscape, its biota, and its natural and cultural prospects. This impressive and richly illustrated volume will appeal to general readers as well as to scholars interested in literature, history, American studies, art history, geography, landscape, and ecology."
--
Wayne Franklin, author of Discoverers, Explorers, Settlers
