Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seeking Refuge examines the development and management of refuges in the wintering range of migratory birds along the Pacific Flyway from Mexico to Alaska, the westernmost of four major migration routes in North America.

"Wilson provides a rich analysis of land and water use; waterfowl migration and conservation; biologists, wildlife agents, and hunters; and the transformation of multiple landscapes. His thoughtful study also enhances our appreciation of the remarkably resilient birds, whose semiannual migrations continue to lift our spirits." -Science

"By looking to the past, Wilson helps us peer into the future, as we try to imagine the consequences of our efforts and proposals to engineer our way out of the latest environmental crisis." -American Scientist

"Essential reading for all who are interested in the protection of wildlife that must survive within intensely transformed landscapes." -Environmental History

"This thoughtful and engaging book blends agricultural history, environmental history, ecology, and historical geography into a compelling narrative that traces the co-evolution of waterfowl management and irrigated agriculture." -Agricultural History

"For anyone who has followed the ongoing disputes on water allocations in the Upper Klamath Basin, Seeking Refuge... is a book to devour." -Klamath Basin Herald and News

"This compelling story of action and reaction that saved numerous species of migratory ducks and geese is detailed and easy to read." -Wildlife Activist

Robert M. Wilson is associate professor of geography at Syracuse University.
