The Lost Forest (Phyllis Root and Betsy Bowen)Phyllis Root will be at Magers & Quinn Booksellers on Sunday, May 19 at 5:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, The Lost Forest.


The Lost Forest tells the story of a lucky error that preserved 144 acres of old-growth red and white pine in Minnesota. With gentle humor, Phyllis Root takes readers deep into a stand of virgin pine, one of the last and largest in the state, where U.S. history and natural history meet. With the help of Betsy Bowen’s finely observed and beautiful illustrations, she shows us all the life that can be found in the Lost Forest.


"Bowen’s moody, saturated illustrations of layered landscapes and historical journals add heft to the text’s implicit message that the natural world is something more than a measurable commodity." —Publishers Weekly, starred review
