Product Description


Canadian professor Glynnis Hood's fantastic new book, The Beaver Manifesto just arrived in the mail today. I started reading the small volume immediately, and found both the writing and the message most engrossing.―Rhonda Winter, EcoLocalizer


Every once in awhile, a writer comes upon a book she wishes she had written. For me, this is The Beaver Manifesto, by Glynnis Hood…. Hood’s writing is light and accessible. She covers all the beaver bases. Her book is small, compact, and easy to read. The Readers Review

Well written, super informative... trappers, farmers, oil patch workers, biologists, environmentalists and others would benefit from reading this... in a time where water is becoming scarce, these incredibly hard working animals could help the world.

HASH(0xa4a19360) out of 5 stars Excellent! May 13 2013
By Bronte fan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent study on this keystone species. Insightful,thoughtful, academic approach to discussing the Beaver. Humorous at times - Glynnis Hood has spent much of her life studying this species from a historical and management standpoint - she truly understands the nature of these dear animals, and the benefits they produce for ecosystems around the globe! This book will hopefully elevate the beaver's importance as nature's engineer/architect/planner/contractor - all which they do for free! You will come away from this book with a greater appreciation and respect for the beaver!
HASH(0xa4e6333c) out of 5 stars Who better to write the book on beavers. July 28 2016
By Delaney - Published on

I have been a fan of Glynnis Hood's research for several years. Earlier this year a wildlife rehabilitator I'm acquainted with, released a pair of beavers onto a fairly private acreage and small lake. The lake levels rose, the diversity of tree species increased, new birds began nesting, species of wildlife that had never inhabitated the lake took up residence there. So when I needed to come up with a paper topic for one of my classes, I choose to research how beavers impact waterways, and can we use native species to reverse some of the damage that's already been done. Glynnis Hood's research popped up again, and again, and again.

So when a beaver entered our rehabilitation clinic, I pretty much bought every book on beavers I could find. Our little beaver friend was transferred to a facility with another little lady beaver the same age, but my books have stayed with me.

I think beavers are amazing. Absolutely and utterly amazing.

HASH(0xa4e63300) out of 5 stars info on Beaver situation Dec 1 2011
By moni517 - Published on

Some interesting facts about the Beaver and how important they are to the the well being of the planet. More info on how to keep them around and the population under control would be interesting. The book should be in a paper back version and at a cheaper price point.
