Overview

The first book to look at wilderness in the northeastern US, Wilderness Comes Home features a new approach based on ecological reserve design to protect biological diversity, rewilding and restoring lands to wilderness, and embedding wilderness in a landscape of sustainably managed farmland and forestland. It addresses major theoretical and practical aspects of this important issue -- whether, why, and how to reestablish wilderness areas in the Northeast. Although Western wilderness models already exist for undeveloped areas, Eastern models are still evolving. Protection and social management are being urged not for the "forest primeval" but for recovering areas, in which returning species such as moose and peregrine falcons roam over new growth softwoods and hardwoods, interspersed with the stone walls that once marked field boundaries.

Booknews
McGrory (environmental studies, Middlebury College) collects a dozen essays that take stock of the Northeastern US's natural history; discuss species recovery/reintroduction; and examine NE wild lands in the context of lessons learned from sites in Vermont and out West. Includes maps, and b&w photos of old growth trees, animals such as moose and pine martens, and their conservation advocates. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Read an Excerpt

As the superb essays in this book make clear, both on the ground across these states and in the minds of more and more of their citizens, a new North Woods is taking shape. No longer the half-forgotten remnant of some past glory long since turned over to the paper companies for liquidation, the north country is now the foundation of a possible future glory, a place where human beings and the rest of creation could manage to make their separate, and sometimes intertwined, livings in reasonable proximity. -- from the Epilogue by Bill McKibben
