Our modern idea of what a healthy landscape looks like and how it functions is distorted by the fur trade that once trapped out millions of beavers from North America's lakes and rivers. Goldfarb shares the powerful story about one of the world's most influential species. He explains how North America was colonized, how our landscapes have changed over the centuries, and how beavers can help us fight drought, flooding, wildfire, extinction, and the ravages of climate change. -- adapted from jacket

2 stars! (Bibliocommons difficult to change rating) Often repetitive and disjointed, the book quickly became boring and in need of some extremely fine editing. A good topic, but the writer uses odd metaphors for no apparent reason except perhaps he likes the sound of his own voice. I am a fan of beavers, but not thrilled by this author.

All the optimism is great fun, tho there is probably another side of the argument (ecology is complicated).
