Reviews

"In her remarkable new book The Rambunctious Garden, Emma Marris explores a paradox that is increasingly vexing the science of ecology, namely that the only way to have a pristine wilderness is to manage it intensively." - Wall Street Journal

" Potentially the most optimistic and controversial work about the future of nature to appear in years." - Grist.org

"Ms Marris's book is an insightful analysis of the thinking that informs nature conservation." - The Economist

"What may be the most important book about the environment in a generation." - Idaho Statesman

"Marris is a whip-smart writer . . . already being compared to the greatest environmental writers and thinkers of the past century, Rachel Carson and Aldo Leopold." - San Francisco Chronicle
