At Home and at Large in the Great Plains: Essays and Memories

ByPaul Johnsgard

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
These fourteen essays originally appeared in Prairie Fire, a monthly newspaper that for seven years has carried important messages of social, environmental, and economic issues to residents of Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, and South Dakota, and subscribers in the rest of the world. They discuss the North American east-west ecological boundaries, spring migration events, bird feeders, feathered survivors of a glacial past, the threatened sharp-tailed grouse, the effects of climate change, some “sacred places”—Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, the Ashfall Fossil Beds, Squaw Creek Refuge, the Hutton Niobrara Ranch Sanctuary, and Yellowstone National Park—, our troubles with mountain lions and grizzly bears, and crane season in Wyoming. There is also an expanded informal autobiography, “My Life in Biology” and a current and comprehensive list of all publications of a writer described as “probably the world’s most prolific living author of ornithological and natural history literature.”
