This anthology -- which includes work by Sandra Alcosser, AlisonHawthorne Deming, Jane Hirshfield, Linda Hogan, Freeman House, RobinWall Kimmerer, Kathleen Dean Moore, Robert Michael Pyle, PattiannRogers, and Scott Russell Sanders -- grows out of the work of theLong-Term Ecological Reflections program and showcases the insights ofthe program’s thoughtful and important encounters among writers,scientists, and place. These vivid essays, poems, and field notesconvey a landscape of moss-draped trees, patchwork clear-cuts,stream-swept gravel bars, and hillsides scoured by fire and also bringforward the ambiguities and paradoxes of conflicting human values andtheir implications for the ecosystem.
