Sample Book Insights:
#1 The Białowiea Puszcza is a forest in Poland that contains Europe’s last remaining fragment of old-growth, lowland wilderness. It was a Polish national park in 1921, but the Nazis invaded and took it over, except for a pristine core that was left intact.
#2 The Puszcza is a pale copy of what Europe used to look like. It is surprising how familiar it feels, and how complete on some cellular level.
#3 The Polish forester Andrzej Bobiec was hired by the Polish national park service. He was fired for protesting management plans that cut closer to the pristine core of the Puszcza. In various international journals, he blasted official policies that asserted that forests will die without our help.
#4 The Belovezhskaya Pushcha is the last remaining habitat of the wisent, a species of European bison. The forest is still growing, but Belarus’s iron curtain stands in the way of people and animals freely mixing.
