Product Overview

"Nature Next Door is deeply researched, consistently thoughtful and clever, and uncommonly well written, offering up a counterintuitive argument: that the return of the northeastern forests can be attributed to links between the metropolis and the hinterland." ---Ari Kelman, University of California, Davis

"Stroud's idea that forests were shaped by human choice is an important complement to the standard story of forest succession in abandoned farmlands in the Northeast." ---Richard Judd, University of Maine

"The moral of Stroud's story has implications fur beyond the American Northeast: the region has forests today because people made choices about them and then did the hard practical and political work of making those choices real. Such things do not happen by accident. They happen because people make them happen. That is as true today as it was a hundred years ago." ---"from the Foreword by William Cronon
