Resurrection of the Wild: Meditations on Ohio’s Natural Landscape

Availability: Ready to download

An impassioned call for recognizing and preserving the ecological wonders of the Allegheny Plateau Yosemite National Park, Louisiana's bayou, the rocky coasts of New England, the desert Southwest—America's more dramatic locations are frequently celebrated for their natural beauty, but far less has been written about Ohio's unique and beautiful environment. Author Deborah Fl An impassioned call for recognizing and preserving the ecological wonders of the Allegheny Plateau Yosemite National Park, Louisiana's bayou, the rocky coasts of New England, the desert Southwest—America's more dramatic locations are frequently celebrated for their natural beauty, but far less has been written about Ohio's unique and beautiful environment. Author Deborah Fleming, who has lived in rural Ohio and cared for its land for decades, shares fourteen interrelated essays, blending her own experiences with both scientific and literary research. Resurrection of the Wild discusses both natural and human histories as it focuses on the Allegheny Plateau and hill country in Ohio's eastern counties. These lyrical meditations delve into life on Fleming's farm, the impacts of the mining and drilling industries, fox hunting, homesteading families, the lives of agriculturalist Louis Bromfield and John Chapman (better known as Johnny Appleseed), and Ohio's Amish community. Fleming finds that our very concept of freedom must be redefined to include preservation and respect for the natural world. Ultimately, Resurrection of the Wild becomes a compelling argument for the importance of ecological preservation in Ohio, and Fleming's perspective will resonate with readers both within and beyond this "forgotten" state's borders.

    Dr Fleming draws the reader in with interesting facts and her experiences of Ohio. I finished the book feeling like I was invited along on a journey to get to know her, her thoughts, and her opinions on a variety of subjects. The book is worth the read, especially if you have any connection with the geography, flora, fauna or the people of Ohio.
