Synopsis: Traces the past and future of the Western and Midwestern grasslands, tracking the first herd of buffalo restored to the land, the efforts of biologists to restore native grasses, and the history of human migration across the prairie. 10,000 first printing.

Review: In an exploration of the grasslands of North America that is both sweeping and intimate, Manning makes interesting connections between economics, botany, farming, and democracy. His discussion of the impact of romantic ideals of landscapes upon this biome is insightful, and his travels with botanists, biologists, buffalo and a visit to Ted Turner's ranch put faces and feet on the story. The message: by a careful reading of nature's design, we can more successfully inhabit this and all landscapes. Recommended.
