Lyric, descriptive, informative, and moving.--Bill Sharp, The New York Times Book Review "[Lost Woods] gives a new generation an opportunity to rediscover the legendary biologist and ecologist. . . . These writings-essays, letters, magazine pieces, speeches-show us the evolution of a decent woman from scholar to warrior for all that's right."--Carolyn See, The Washington Post "This wonderful new book allows us to discover and learn anew from the scientist who taught ecology to the world." -San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle "Lear unveils in Carson's own words how she developed as a scientist and a writer, uniting science and literature to create works that still resonate today."--Elizabeth Abbott, Toronto Globe and Mail "What comes across most profoundly here is Carson's innate understanding-spiritual as much as scientific-of the connectedness of all living things, and her ability to describe complicated concepts in phrases that sing. . . . Read this book."--Bruce Mirken, Pacific Sun
