Summary
  • "Brewer's book, the first comprehensive treatment of land trusts, combines a historical overview of the movement with more specific information on the different kinds of land trusts that exist and the problems they face. The volume also offers a "how-to" approach for people and institutions interested in donating, selling or buying land
  • Discusses four major national land trusts (The Nature Conservancy, Trust for Public Land, American Farmland Trust, and Rails-to-Trails Conservancy); and gives a generous sampling of information about the activities and accomplishments of smaller, local trusts nationwide
  • Brewer's information on the how and why of protecting land is enriched by his intimate knowledge of ecological systems, biodiversity, and the interconnectedness on human and non-human life forms." "Conservancy is a must-read volume for people interested in land conservation - including land trust members, volunteers, and supporters - as well as anyone concerned about land use and the environment."--Jacket
