Grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars/ mountain lions,bobcats, wolverines, lynx, foxes, fishers and martens are the suite of carnivores that originally inhabited North America after the Pleistocene extinctions. This site invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on that suite of native animals (predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparral wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment. - Blogger Rick

Subject: New material for your blog on wildness!
To: Rick Meril <>

Dear Rick,

Here is some new material for your blog, that I hope you will please publish. This book is all about why we need wildness, and it is scholarly, peer-reviewed. Contributors include people who have a lot of wisdom on this topic. It is humbling to have been invited to contribute a chapter to this anthology.

"Rediscovery of the Wild: Check out the new ecopsychology anthology just published by MIT Press, edited by Patricia Hasbach and Peter Kahn in which Cristina Eisenberg wrote a chapter, entitled "Quantifying Wildness: A Scientist's Lessons about Wolves and Nature."

It can also be pre-ordered from Amazon. Doug Peacock, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and Jack Turner have chapters in this scholarly, peer-reviewed volume on why we need wildness. A great teaching tool as well as a source of personal inspiration!"

Thanks so much for all you do to keep wildness alive in America.
