We are pleased to announce that Dr. Eric Sanderson’s new book, “Mannahatta: A Natural History of New York City,” has been released! The book describes Manhattan Island as it was when Henry Hudson arrived on September 12, 1609, the moment before New York City was born. Dr. Sanderson has been researching the primordial island for nearly a decade. The result is a tour-de-force of landscape ecology, cutting-edge visualization, and old-fashioned scientific sleuthing. This book could mark a new era in how we conceive of New York City and its environment, and how we conceive of cities as part of the planetary human footprint which threatens wildlife and wild places globally. Harry N. Abrams, Inc., publisher. Place your order here!
