The Klamath Knot: Explorations of Myth and Evolution, Twentieth Anniversary Edition

Descriere: "The Klamath Knot is a classic work of natural history, a wondrous meditation through time and space, and an intimate portrait of a miraculous stretch of land, forest, and mountain as botanically rich as any place in North America, as ecologically vital and important as any place on the planet."–Wade Davis, author of "One River: Explorations and Discoveries in the Amazon Rain Forest"In Wallace’s hands, evolution is never mechanical or abstract; it is always seen operating in particular sites and species. As a stylist and a thinker Wallace is in a select class of writers who make science into literature."–Ernest Callenbach, author of "Ecotopia"For those of us who like David Rains Wallace’s writing, it is good news indeed that his much-admired "The Klamath Knot is back in print."–Sue Hubbell, author of "Waiting for Aphrodite: Journeys into the Time Before Bones"A classic of natural history which will take its place alongside "Walden "and "A Sand County Almanac."–G. Ledyard Stebbins, author of "Variation and Evolution in Plants ""The Klamath Knot "is a marvelous book, one of the finest nature essays I have read, beautifully written, full of stimulating ideas and insights."–George B. Schaller, author of "The Last Panda
