    文/賴嘉綾2016年06月21日

    OKAPI總是送來最難的題材,這回說要做專題,讓我絞盡腦汁。雖然我也喜歡偷偷小作怪,但還不到能大作怪的能力。所以想了這個「愈翻閱愈驚奇──不可錯過的10位繪本藝術家」的主題,介紹幾位最不怕麻煩的繪本家。就是製作過程與所需技巧的精細繁複,讓他們無法做太多書,但本本精彩!當我們越瞭解作者的 more
 

內容簡介

Focusing on the role of prairie dogs as a keystone species, this book tells the connected histories of the North American grassland prairies and current efforts to preserve and recover the Janos grasslands in northern Mexico.

For thousands of years, green and gold grasses covered North America from Canada to Mexico. The prairie and desert grasslands were home to a variety of animals, from small prairie dogs to huge bison. But in the nineteenth century, ranching and farming took hold in the grasslands, and over time many of the animals and plants vanished.

Then, in the late 1980s, scientists discovered a region in Mexico where green and gold grasses still waved and prairie dogs still barked. The scientists understood the importance of this grassland ecosystem and the prairie dogs’ key role in it. Could they now preserve the area and bring back its lost animals and plants?

This moving nonfiction tale of environmental recovery builds on the success of the acclaimed Parrots Over Puerto Rico and The Mangrove Tree. Cumulative song text plus prose passages combine to celebrate North America’s grasslands, their iconic prairie dogs, and the dedicated scientists who work to make the grasslands healthy again.
