Challenging the beliefs of patriotic conservationists, author John Leland investigates the truth behind the native origins of plants and animals that are commonly thought to be an essential part of the American environment. As he points out, ever since man and his dog first crossed the Bering Sea to settle on the Continent, there have been continuous changes to the environment, making the definition of "native" problematic.
