Tahir Shah…the most touching thing about this book is the way Stark detours us away from the world we've all been sold—the shopping malls and the theme parks, the gridlock, the cities and the desperate homogeneity of it all. With irresistible charm he reminds us that America is still a wild and vibrant miscellany of nature, a one-of-a-kind place. With time I can imagine The Last Empty Places becoming required reading in schools. And I hope it does. It's a book that the early American naturalists and the pioneers before them would be proud of, one that carves through the smoke screen of mass culture, reminding us of the true essence of America.
