The Prairie Keepers: Secrets of the Grasslands


The Prairie Keepers: Secrets of the Grasslands Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tucked away in the far corner of remote notheastern Oregon lies the ruggedly beautiful Zumwalt Prairie—a seemingly peaceful land of waving grasses that has become a symbolic battleground in the war between ranchers and environmentalists over the use of our country’s rapidly vanishing natural habitat.Marcy Houle’s job was to cover the 200 square miles of the Zumwalt in search of three species of hawks. What she discovered was the densest concentration of these hawks anywhere in the lower forty-eight states. Why? Houle’s findings, eloquently reported, show that ranchers and grazing and wildlife not only can coexist, but in some instances must coexist if we are to save the last of the native prairies for us all.
