    In this engaging book, Ben Goldfarb highlights the beneficial contributions of beavers, an oft-maligned keystone species with a long history on the North American continent

    Winner of the 2019 PEN/E.O. Wilson Award for Literary Science Writing, Goldfarb writes with warmth and humor as he challenges dominant cultural perspectives about this riparian critter and proposes that we actually need more beavers, not fewer!

    Participants are asked to read the first three sections of the book before the first session.
