Islands of Grass book launch

You are invited to a launch of the Islands of Grass, a passionate and beautifully illustrated plea for one of the most endangered and least protected landscapes on Earth: the remaining fragments of natural prairie on the northern plains. Written by award-winning author and naturalist Trevor Herriot and accompanied with the remarkable photography by Branimir Gjetvaj, Islands of Grass is an irresistible call to action to protect what remains of this natural splendour.
