The story of a forest “lost” by a surveying error—and all the flora and fauna to be found there

The Lost Forest tells the story of a lucky error that preserved 144 acres of old-growth red and white pine in Minnesota. With gentle humor, Phyllis Root takes readers deep into a stand of virgin pine, one of the last and largest in the state, where U.S. history and natural history meet. With the help of Betsy Bowen’s finely observed and beautiful illustrations, she shows us all the life that can be found in the Lost Forest.
