Summary
Beginning in the North American Boreal Forest that stretches through Canada, and roving across the continent from the Northern Sierra to Alabama's Paint Rock Forest to a ranch in Mexico, Hiss sets out on a journey to take stock of the "superorganism" that is the earth: its land, its elements, its occupants, its greatest threats, and what we can do to keep it, and ourselves, alive. He invites us to understand not only the scope and gravity of the problems we face in this challenge, but just why protecting half the land is the way to fix them, introducing us to the many institutions and organizations already involved in the fight. -- adapted from jacket
