Industry reviews
"This is in many ways a splendid book, let down only by Flannery's occasional flights of fantasy....Tim Flannery is the real thing: a man with a fight for lucid exposition, who can really make his subject come alive...."
Literary Review - Frank McLynn (05/01/2001)
"Watch out, fellow North Americans. This gutsy Aussie may have read our landscape and ecological history with greater clarity than any native son."
Natural History  
"Tim Flannery's book will forever change your perspective on the North American continent."
New York Review of Books - John Terborgh (09/20/2001)
