Praise

Lyric, descriptive, informative, and moving.–Bill Sharp, The New York Times Book Review

“[Lost Woods] gives a new generation an opportunity to rediscover the legendary biologist and ecologist. . . . These writings-essays, letters, magazine pieces, speeches-show us the evolution of a decent woman from scholar to warrior for all that’s right.”–Carolyn See, The Washington Post

“This wonderful new book allows us to discover and learn anew from the scientist who taught ecology to the world.”
-San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle

“Lear unveils in Carson’s own words how she developed as a scientist and a writer, uniting science and literature to create works that still resonate today.”–Elizabeth Abbott, Toronto Globe and Mail

“What comes across most profoundly here is Carson’s innate understanding-spiritual as much as scientific-of the connectedness of all living things, and her ability to describe complicated concepts in phrases that sing. . . . Read this book.”–Bruce Mirken, Pacific Sun
