Show synopsis ""The Klamath Knot" is a classic work of natural history, a wondrous meditation through time and space, and an intimate portrait of a miraculous stretch of land, forest, and mountain as botanically rich as any place in North America, as ecologically vital and important as any place on the planet."--Wade Davis, author of "One River: Explorations and Discoveries in the Amazon Rain Forest" "In Wallace's hands, evolution is never mechanical or abstract; it is always seen operating in particular sites and species. As a stylist and a thinker Wallace is in a select class of writers who make science into literature."--Ernest Callenbach, author of "Ecotopia" "For those of us who like David Rains Wallace's writing, it is good news indeed that his much-admired "The Klamath Knot" is back in print."--Sue Hubbell, author of "Waiting for Aphrodite: Journeys into the Time Before Bones" "A classic of natural history which will take its place alongside "Walden "and "A Sand County Almanac.""--G. Ledyard Stebbins, author of "Variation and Evolution in Plants " ""The Klamath Knot "is a marvelous book, one of the finest nature essays I have read, beautifully written, full of stimulating ideas and insights."--George B. Schaller, author of "The Last Panda "
