Center for Biological Diversity

Book Talk: Spine of the Continent: The Most Ambitious Wildlife Conservation Project Ever Undertaken
November 15, 2012
San Francisco, California

In her new book, Spine of the Contintent, Mary Ellen Hannibal presents a gripping history of America’s habitat, the animals within it and the people who study and are trying to save them. There’s even a chapter on the Center’s fight to save the pika.

A starred review in Publishers Weekly reads: “A thoroughly satisfying gem, readers will find themselves in the company of America’s best minds (Jared Diamond, Michael Soule) and heroes (Sherri Tippie), as Hannibal travels through landscapes chronicling the efforts underway to keep North America habitable for the plants and animals that first lived here and the people who now call it home. This is what scientific writing should be: fascinating and true.”

Join the Center and Hannibal for a book reading and talk.
