“”The historiography of the persistence of happenstance plants and the enduring human conception of their meaning has found rich expression in this book. Indeed Falck’s insights offer a singular contribution to a field that began forty years ago by interrogating the formation of the conservation movement and its wild and monumental artifacts—the national forests and parks—as emblems of the American claim to be nature’s nation.”

“An important reconsideration of the story of urban development during the last two centurires. . . . Commendable for its author’s ability to tease out the social and the ecological in order to tell a sophisticated urban environmental history. “
—Jared Orsi, Colorado State University
—David Stradling, University of Cincinnati
