PHANTOMS OF THE PRAIRIE, a new book by Cougar Rewilding’s Vice President John Laundre, is now in our store http://www.easterncougar.org/pages/store.htm
Phantoms of the Prairie: the Return of Cougars to the Midwest, is a book about what was, what is, and what could be. It tells the story of what the ecological role was of cougars probably was before the destruction of the large prairie ecosystem. The book then looks at where cougars might still live in what remains of the prairie areas, how they should be versus how they are being viewed by the citizens in those areas, and what are the chances they can return. Lastly, the book looks at what are the possible routes cougars might take to cross the “amber waves of grain” to reach forested areas in the East. The book is a virtual journey of cougars into and through the Midwest, a journey we hope you will take.
