Adam Regn Arvidson shares his new book, Wild and Rare: Tracking Endangered Species in the Upper Midwest.
What can endangered species tell us about our part of the world? What can they tell us about us?
The elusive Canada lynx bears kittens in Minnesota’s northeastern woods. In the far southeastern part of the state, the succulent Leedy’s roseroot clings to cold cliffs. On the northwestern grasslands, the western prairie fringed orchid grows only on ancient glacial beach ridges. In the rivers of the Twin Cities metro area, the snuffbox mussel snaps on a fish’s nose to give its larvae a temporary home. These species and fifteen others living in Minnesota are on the federal Endangered Species List.
Adam Regn Arvidson, a talented science reporter and genial guide, uncovers the stories of these plants and animals, providing compelling views of the state’s northern pine forest, deciduous forest, and prairie landscapes.
This book is an entertaining and educational journey through Minnesota’s diverse landscapes, one wild and rare inhabitant at a time.
