Field Guide to a Hybrid Landscape makes visible the forces that shaped what was once the world's largest hand-planted forest located in the Sandhills region of Nebraska, the largest intact temperate grassland in the world. Re:forest focuses on seedlings grown at Bessey Nursery, located in the Bessey Ranger District of the Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands. No longer producing seedlings for the hand-planted forest as originally intended, the oldest federal nursery now provides seedlings to National Forests with catastrophic fire and beetle damage.

Dana will be signing copies of her book from 1:00-1:30PM on Saturday, March 4th at the University of Nebraska Press booth. Order your copy here
