Allan Savory writes on a vast subject, yet clearly conveys the important ideas behind creating and maintaining a healthy ecosystem. By training a Zoologist, the former tracker, wildlife manager, rancher, legislator, and now educator - Savory draws from his experiences as both a doer and a teacher to illuminate his points.
One key item Savory covers that is not covered in many other similar books is how and when to monitor and what to look for once a course of action is decided upon. The section on monitoring is worth the price of the book.
Ranchers, wildlife biologists, members of boards of trustees, as well as those concerned about DOING something about environmental degradation will find Savory engaging, challenging, and informative. People who have never been exposed to the ideas behind the central role of hoofed animals in ecological health will be the most suprised.

If you want to solve problems and live with purpose and actually make a difference towards a sustainable civilization .. This book is at the top of the list.
AND.. It is just plain interesting !! Thank you Mr. Savory.
For the majority of writers on sustainability, the causes of our crisis are greed, overpopulation, consumption, development, and multinational corporations. For them, sustainability is a modern, industrial-era problem. The solutions are political: shift power from the wrong people and organizations to the right people and organizations, or quit logging, grazing, or using chemicals.
Savory's book shows, in convincing and elegant detail, that those who concentrate on shifting ideology or politics to move toward sustainability are just rearranging the deck chairs. The backlash and the revenge of unintended consequences will continue. If we are serious about this, we must change our decision framework. The way we make decisions, which is usually unconscious and habitual, is the key factor. Savory and Butterfield show us how this works, from start to finish.
