Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Filmmakers Larrabee and Altman supply an achingly beautiful companion book to their acclaimed PBS documentary Last Stand of the Tallgrass Prairie. Designated as the "most endangered ecosystem in North America," the tallgrass prairie has diminished to only five percent of its original size. Supporting a wide variety of increasingly endangered plants and animals, and providing a necessary source of nutrients and air purity, the grasslands are the object of massive preservation efforts by contemporary environmentalists. In addition to examining the natural and scientific significance of the prairie's unique ecology, the authors also analyze the profound effect the natural prairie landscape has had on the collective psyche of the American people. Accompanied by more than 150 stunning photographs, this informative text is also a browser's delight. Margaret Flanagan

Format: Hardcover
This is an outstanding coffee table book for folks who appreciate or want to know more about the history and what is happening to the Tall Grass Prairie. Having worked with landowners and producers in the Flint Hills of Kansas (last large area of the tall grass prairie), I recommend the book and the video it supports (Last Stand of the Tall Grass Prairie). The Tall Grass Prairie is a vanishing resourse form lack of proper management and fragmentation (urban sprawl).
