"Ecological restoration is one of today's most constructive, hopeful, and provocative environmental movements, and William Jordan III is its leading visionary."--Michael Pollan, author of "The Botany of Desire" "This profoundly provocative and challenging book proposes nothing less than to change the focus of the American and indeed global environmental movement from 'defense' to 'offense.' It offers a bold, positive replacement for the thinking that has underlain the conservation and preservation movements from their beginnings. In fact, it makes a convincing argument for an altogether new relation between human beings and the natural environment."--Ernest Callenbach, author of "Ecotopia" "In this remarkable book, Bill Jordan, the preeminent philosopher of ecological restoration, essays nothing less than mooting the distinction between nature and culture. An argument so brilliant that it's a work of art, The Sunflower Forest envisions evolution, ecosystems, and human action as integral, dynamic, and harmonious. Sage, erudite, and original, The Sunflower Forest is bound to provoke and inspire."--Stephanie Mills, author of I"n Service of the Wild: Restoring and Reinhabiting Damaged Land" "In a world where Nature is on the defensive and natural habitats shrink by the minute, ecological restoration offers the only hope for many species and ecosystems. As Bill Jordan explains in his wonderful new book, our taking the offensive to reclaim damaged lands, also restores our spirits."--Stuart Pimm, Doris Duke Chair of Conservation Ecology, Duke University ""The Sunflower Forest "is a highly original, thoughtful, and provocative argument for restoration as a new environmental paradigm. Jordan is a serious intellectual. The book captivated me--it could be the 'must read' book of the year."--Max Oelschlaeger, Ecological Restoration Institute, Northern Arizona University
