Editorial Reviews


"Though Pearce tempers his optimism with hard science, his enthusiasm is infectious...An exhilarating and informative look at the world’s forests and how we can help them thrive."—Kirkus

“Few topics could be more urgent than the fate of the world's forests. A Trillion Trees is a vivid, important, and inspiring book.”
Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Sixth Extinction and Under a White Sky

“Stirring and surprising … leaps from country to country, from case study to case study, in a manner reminiscent of Elizabeth Kolbert’s The Sixth Extinction. ...If you care about the future of the planet, you have to read this book.”
The Times (UK)

“[Pearce] eloquently mulls the ecological dynamics of forests as well as the social, economic, cultural, and political forces that determine their fate.”
LA Review of Books

“A journey to discover that every life on this planet is connected to our remaining trees, and that the people living among them may know best about how to fight for their future.”
—Lauren E. Oakes,
author of In Search of the Canary Tree

“We should all read Fred's book. He tells us in a practical and most readable way, how we can bring back the forests of the Earth and restore our planet to health. Never think that we can plant a forest ecosystem. The mega mix of species has to come together by itself. That is the best and easiest way to save ourselves and perhaps Gaia.”
James Lovelock, author of The Vanishing Face of Gaia and Novacene

“That most commonplace thing, a tree, is now our best hope for maintaining a habitable planet. This book explains in accessible, urgent prose the many wondrous workings of trees in making rain, wind, oxygen and habitats for much of life on earth as well as a vision for how we can, and must, reforest the world. Essential reading for the twenty-first century.”
Ben Rawlence, author of City of Thorns

“An important and eloquent contribution from one of our very best science journalists. Forests have always transfixed the human imagination, and you will be transfixed by Pearce’s stories of travels around the world to forests in over forty countries. And his conclusions may surprise you.”
James Gustave Speth, former dean, Yale School of the Environment, and author of America the Possible: Manifesto for a New Economy

Praise for The New Wild

Named one of the best books of 2015 by the Economist

“[Pearce] hits the nail on the head… [He] brings the balanced perspective of a seasoned, freethinking environmental reporter, pushing points that need to be made.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Pearce shows that biodiversity actually increases more frequently than it decreases when newer wildlife marches in. Must reading for environmentalists of every stripe, and an optimistic report on the resilience of nature in a world of constantly shifting ecosystems.”

Praise for The Land Grabbers

“Raises complex and urgent issues.”
Booklist, STARRED review

“Compelling and well-researched ... Dissects the modern rush to acquire land for production, investment, speculation or preservation.”

“A thorough and enlightening exposé.”

“A well-researched, informative and accessible look at important economic and agricultural issues.”
Kirkus Review
