Item description for Pinhook: Finding Wholeness in a Fragmented Land by Janisse Ray...

Janisse Ray, award-winning author of Ecology of a Cracker Childhood and Wild Card Quilt, writes an evocative paean to wildness and wilderness restoration with an extraordinary journey into southern Georgia's Pinhook Swamp.

Pinhook Swamp is a vital watershed and wildlife corridor linking the great southern wildernesses of Okefenokee Swamp and Osceola National Forest. Together Okefenokee, Osceola, and Pinhook form the largest expanse of protected wild land east of the Mississippi River. This is one of America's last wild places, and Pinhook takes us into its heart.

Ray comes to know Pinhook intimately as she joins the fight to protect it, spending the night in the swamp, tasting honey made from its flowers, tracking wildlife, and talking to others about their relationship with the swamp. Ray sees Pinhook through the eyes of the people who live there---naturalists, beekeepers, homesteaders, hunters, and locals at the country store. In lyrical, downhome prose, she draws together the swamp's need for restoration and the human desire for wholeness and wildness in our own lives and landscapes.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pinhook: Finding Wholeness in a Fragmented Land?

Another winner!!  Jul 20, 2007
Janisse Ray has now written two marvelous books about the natural world, our impact on it, and its on us. She writes in an engaging low-key style that draws you into her experiences. "Ecology of a Cracker Childhood" is about growing up in rural Georgia, and about longleaf pine forests. "Pinhook" talks about the wilderness being preserved by the creation of the Pogo wilderness area (Okeefenokee, Pinhook, Osceola). Light, easy, and long-lasting in its impact. I wish we could get more people committed to the subjects of Ms. Ray's efforts.

Understanding Wholeness in a New Way  Mar 19, 2006
Janisse Ray continues in her appealing and warm style to bring us to environmental concerns in the northern Florida-southern Georgia swamp lands. She takes us with her in visiting the land and people. Her deeply sensitive relationship with the land draws connections that the average reader would probably miss. This book is like spending time with a good friend.
A blend of natural history and philosophy which is winning and thought-provoking  Aug 8, 2005
Wilderness is a necessary part of life if humans are to heal - and so are the animals which form it. Pinhook Swamp is a watershed and wildlife corridor linking different wildlife refuges in the South: Janisse Ray's Pinhook: Finding Wholeness In A Fragmented Land follows the swamp's need for restoration and the human concurrent need for wilderness, providing a blend of natural history and philosophy which is winning and thought-provoking.
