9780292708358: Saving the Best of Texas: A Partnership Approach to Conservation (Corrie Herring Hooks Series)

With a deep belief in partnerships for conservation, Richard C. Bartlett, Chairman of The Nature Conservancy of Texas, explores the past and ongoing efforts of individuals and groups—private, public, federal, and state—to save the best of Texas' natural landscapes and the myriad species of plants and animals they support. Drawing on some 100,000 miles of backroads travel, Bartlett vividly describes many of the areas that, through a commitment to partnerships, have already been preserved in their natural state. Fine color photographs by Leroy Williamson provide a striking visual counterpoint to the text.

These words and images give well-deserved credit to the people responsible for saving some of the best of Texas. They also highlight the need to continue to join together to preserve our natural environment so that the beauty and diversity we enjoy today will be available for future generations. It is the author's hope that Saving the Best of Texas will be a catalyst in that process.

Review:

"This book about the conservation of Texas’ diverse and beautiful land will be enjoyed not just by Texas conservationists, but by anyone interested in natural landscapes and the various efforts to protect them. Far from a radical or extreme environmentalist, Bartlett speaks rationally and eloquently about countless landscapes and the specific ecosystems which inhabit them. The book also offers stunning glossy photographs which make it that much more delightful." (Books of the Southwest)
