Big Bluestem: A Journey Into the Tallgrass Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Big Bluestem traces the history and natural ecosystem of Osage County, "The Tall Grass Preserve, " where man favorably cohabits with the environment. Winner of the Carolyn Bancroft Award for the Best Non-Fiction, Book of the Year Award in the American West, and the Small Press Book Award for Design.

Book News Annotation:

The Nature Conservancy has begun an ecological experiment on one of North America's last remaining expanses of grasslands. Beyond simply conserving the place, they are studying it and shaping it anew--bringing back bison and seeding with fire to liberate the biodiversity of a land never broken by the plow. Writer Smith was employed to present what is known and being researched concerning the natural ecosystem of the Osage tallgrass prairie, as well as the historical human uses of the prairie that have shaped its attributes. Color photos by Harvey Payne, who grew up and lives in the area, reveal his intimate knowledge and reverence for the land and its flora and fauna.
