Those of us who love the eastern forest have often wondered what it must have looked like to see the chestnuts in full bloom, their snowy canopy dominating the springtime woods. This fine history tells the fraught story of this species and the fraught story of the attempts to bring it back-stories which raise every question of ethics one can imagine. What a tale!

—Bill McKibben, author of Wandering Home
