Land of Bears and Honey A Natural History of East Texas Press Reviews

...this graceful blend of history, narrative and dialogue paints a noble portrait of one more disappearing chunk of Americana. * Los Angeles Times Book Review * In Land of Bears and Honey, East Texans have their own regional Walden, written with keen historical perspectives, literary style, and deep respect for the land. * East Texas Historical Journal * This elegant chronicle of the natural history of a once-rich area will appeal strongly to birders, ecologists, to anyone who enjoys the outdoors. * Publishers Weekly * To compare the style and content of this little book to that of the late Aldo Leopold is indeed high praise, yet the reviewer finds this comparison valid, both in content and style.... The book is a gem. * Quarterly Review of Biology *
