Publisher's Summary

Douglas W. Tallamy's first book, Bringing Nature Home, awakened thousands of individuals to an urgent situation: wildlife populations are in decline because the native plants they depend on are fast disappearing. His solution? Plant more natives. In this new book, Tallamy takes the next step and outlines his vision for a grassroots approach to conservation.   

Nature's Best Hope shows how homeowners everywhere can turn their yards into conservation corridors that provide wildlife habitats. Because this approach relies on the initiatives of private individuals, it is immune from the whims of government policy. Even more important, it's practical, effective, and easy - you will walk away with specific suggestions you can incorporate into your own yard.  

If you're concerned about doing something good for the environment, Nature's Best Hope is the blueprint you need. By acting now, you can help preserve our precious wildlife - and the planet - for future generations.

The most important message in the world

Excellent book, solution-oriented approach, totally worth listening and teaching others by example. Stewardship needs to be the new norm.

A must read for everybody! Not just nature lovers.

This is a great book about how regular citizens can do a huge part in revitalizing our denuded and degraded natural landscapes. Mr. Tallamy shows us quite simply that if given a chance nature will find a way. The narrator does a great job with this reading. After a few sentences into the book I felt like I was listening to the author read his own work. An easy listen.
