About the Author

T Edward Bak is a native of Colorado and a long-time Oregon resident exploring intersections of culture and ecology in western North America through his comics work. While living in Athens, Georgia, Bak produced the autobiographical comic strip Service Industry for Flagpole Magazine. Bak's work would later appear in the critically-acclaimed anthologies Drawn & Quarterly Showcase, The Best American Comics, and MOME.


T Edward Bak is a writer and illustrator who manages to combine personal history with history in the largest sense. He is simultaneously a historian and ecologist. He cuts through the strata of different levels of existence to give a comprehensive, illuminating and often sobering view of the relationship between humans and the landscape. -- Jenny Zervakis, author-artist of Strange Growths

T Edward Bak knows his nature. His cartooning brings amazing species to life on the page (even extinct ones) while he shares important stories about the natural world and our role in it. Don't miss this book. -- John R. Platt, award-winning environmental journalist and editor of The Revelator

T Edward Bak's comics are a powerful mix of bold visual themes and calculated restraint. From color to line to page composition and more, Bak's attention to deal makes every panel and page stand out. Like the subject of his current project (the naturalist Georg Steller) Bak has a roving and feverish curiosity about everything he translates onto the page. -- Rob Clough, The Comics Journal

Bak is one of our great naturalist cartoonists, with a fierce moral vision and deep engagement with history. He has seen the glory of wild landscapes with his own eyes and you see it on these pages.-- Kevin Huizenga
