Author and naturalist Nancy Lawson discusses The Humane Gardener: Nurturing a Backyard Habitat for Wildlife. She explains how to foster a habitat by providing food and shelter for wild animals and making gardens safe for the animals who live there. The Humane Gardener illustrates simple principles for both attracting wildlife and peacefully resolving conflicts with all the creatures who share our world.
"[Lawson] has come to see her garden as a place that is no longer territory to be defended against the squirrels, the moles and other invading critters, but a place to be extended to them. ...The book is something of a guide to dealing with nuisance species--how to humanely remove squirrels from your attic, for example--but it is, at its heart, a plea to rethink our mentality about other species on our patch." - Adrian Higgins, The Washington Post
"For the past few years, I have been working to replace my lawn with plants that attract beneficial insects. The Humane Gardener has showed me many more ways I can repair the balance of nature in my yard, and I hope to inspire my neighbors to do the same." - Washington Gardener
"[A] very important book that everyone with a container garden to a postage stamp yard to a large piece of property should read." - Jill Sell, The Cleveland Plain Dealer
