'This deceptively slender volume is three things: a how-to-book, an aesthetic feast and a moral tale.... To same a last remnant (of the forest) is a triumph, but it is a trump to be savored in sadness. Our ancestors found East Texas a land of beauty spots.' --'Dallas Morning News'

"To compare the style and content of this little book to that of the late Aldo Leopold is indeed high praise, yet the reviewer finds this comparison valid, both in content and style.... The book is a gem."

—Quarterly Review of Biology

"This elegant chronicle of the natural history of a once-rich area will appeal strongly to birders, ecologists, to anyone who enjoys the outdoors."

—Publishers Weekly

"In Land of Bears and Honey, East Texans have their own regional Walden, written with keen historical perspectives, literary style, and deep respect for the land."

—Fred Tarpley, East Texas Historical Journal

"...this graceful blend of history, narrative and dialogue paints a noble portrait of one more disappearing chunk of Americana."

—Los Angeles Times Book Review

"...one of the most powerful chronicles of man's destructiveness to come along in many years."

—Southwest Review
