Praise

“Tony Hiss has not just captured the possibility of large-scale conservation, he’s understood that it needs to be connected with human beings. The idea of Indigenous Protected Areas that he describes is one of those prospects—simultaneously radical and obvious—that might give us a fighting chance in the decades ahead!” —Bill McKibben, author of Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?

“Hiss creates a sense of hope with lyrical descriptions and immersive portrayals of various programs across the continent . . . This eye-opening survey will leave readers inspired.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A passionate argument for protecting the world’s rapidly shrinking wilderness . . . [Hiss] describes a campaign to protect 50% of the world’s land [and] illustrates his thought-provoking arguments with a handful of North American projects, including a major expansion of the Appalachian Trail, rejuvenation of New Jersey’s Pine Barrens, restoration of the vast pine forests in the Southeast, and conversion of Yellowstone into a Greater Yellowstone protected area, essential to preserve its diminishing species . . . A combination of passion, inspiration, and rigor.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
