The 49th publication in the Nazraeli Press One Picture Book series. From the publisher: "In this elegant volume, David Maisel first publishes images made more than 20 years ago, of clearcut logging sites in northern Maine. The title refers to a series of environmental crises triggered by extinctions within an ecosystem. Accompanied by an excerpt from Susan Stewart's poem 'The Forest', the images and words together limn an elegy for that which has incontrovertibly vanished."
