Reviews

"Barton brings us the untold story of one of Michigan's iconic natural resources--its cultural and historical importance, its mistreatment and demise, and the seeds of hope for its future recovery. She writes with deep reverence and careful scholarship, in a warm style that makes me want to paddle the backwaters of Michigan's rivers and lakes, searching for lost stands of this amazing grass."
--SAMUEL THAYER, author of The Forager's Harvest, Nature's Garden, and Incredible Wild Edibles
