Description - Nature's Restoration by Peter Friederici
Around the world, people are working to help nature heal itself. This is a lyrical look at examples of ordinary citizens aiming to return sizable tracts of the landscape to nature, and to health by preserving rare species, reversing negative ecological trends, and promoting greater intimacy with nature. The book also looks at the controversy that restoration projects provoke and ultimately how this movement shapes both places and people.
