Reading The Forested Landscape, by Tom Wessels

"Landscape is much more than scenery to be observed or even terrain to be traveled... Etched into the land is the history of how we have inhabited it, the storms and fires that have shaped it, and its response to these and other changes. An intrepid sleuth and articulate tutor, Wessels teaches us to read a landscape the way we might solve a mystery... no walk in the woods will ever be the same."

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
