22.95

This is the story of a small band of determined townspeople and how far they went to save beloved land and endangered species from the grip of a powerful corporation.  This is a narrative with roots as deep as the trees the community is trying to save, something set in motion before the author was even born.  And yet, Heather Schumaker gives a human face to the changing nature of land conservation in the twenty-first century.  Written in a captivating narrative style, the book serves as a case study for landscape level preservation and a record of the challenges of integrating economic livelihoods into conservation.  Saving Arcadia demonstrates the triumph of community and what it means to "preserve" land over time.
