THE ONCE AND FUTURE WORLD
J.B. MacKinnon's new book reveals the natural world of the past and what it tells us about nature today. Stepping back in time, MacKinnon finds a living planet more abundant than anyone had imagined, and traces how we lost that ecological wealth out of greed, yes, but also through a 'great forgetting.' Calling on us to remember nature as it was, to reconnect with it as it is, and to remake it for the future, THE ONCE AND FUTURE WORLD is the deepest exploration yet of the idea of 'rewilding.'
