Using his expertise as a biologist and ecologist, George Constantz illuminates these remarkable slices of mountain life. His provocative accounts of birds, insects, rodents, predators, trees, and flowers are natural history at its best, provoking curiosity and wonder. Who wouldn't be intrigues by a rattlesnake's ability to hunt in total darkness by detecting the infrared radiation emitted by a mouse? Or the adaptations that enable white-tailed ptarmigan to thrive in their high, treeless alpine environments--even through the winter? These and other narratives, often brought home with a counterintuitive twist, invite readers to make new connections and broaden perspectives about wild places

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Home to the oldest mountains on the planet and the richest forests in North America -- within a mosaic of diverse habitats and cultures, Appalachia tells the story of a people struggling to find a true and proper relationship to the natural world ... Time and Terrain begins the tale -- the birth of the mountains, the evolution of the forest, the arrivals of the Native-Americans [sic] and the Europeans. Appalachia appears on the map for the first time ... [In] New Green World ... the contrasting attitudes of Native Americans and European settlers toward the mountains and the rich land bring bloodshed, tragedy, and longterm consequences for all forms of life ... [In] Mountain Revolutions ... the American Civil War tears a prospering, agrarian region apart -- politically, economically, and spiritually -- setting the stage for railroads, land buyers and vast, unpredictable change ... Power and Place [shows] the effects of unchecked industrialization -- floods, forest fires, erosion and poverty -- awakening a busy nation to its responsibilities toward the mountains, the forests, the wildlife, and the people"--Containers
