From the Shelves II
Wormwood Forest: A Natural History of Chernobyl by Mary Mycio [Joseph Henry 2005].
Not as depressing a book as one might expect from the subject matter. Mycio looks into what comes next. How will we warn future generations? What do we do with the land? Who can live there? Included as a horse book because of the 21 Takhi released into the buffer zone, recounted in “Chapter 5: Back to the Wild”
Mycio’s Slate bibliograohy includes the 2012 article, “The First 1 Percent: Horses may be the source of humans’ oldest social stratifications”. Mycio is a horse owner, photos here.
