In 1969, J. David Bamberger bought what he described as “the sorriest piece of land” in the Texas Hill Country for the specific purpose of restoring the degraded landscape. Today, Selah, Bamberger Ranch Preserve, is one of the largest habitat restoration projects in the state and serves as a model for land conservation and environmental education. Seasons at Selah: The Legacy of Bamberger Ranch Preserve chronicles Bamberger’s dedication to ethical land stewardship and conservation education through stunning photographs of the land, plants and wildlife he has devoted his time and resources to protect. Photographers Rusty Yates and David K. Langford capture each season at Selah and offer an intimate glimpse into the day-to-day management and operations of the ranch as well as some of the challenges it faces. In the accompanying text, Andrew Sansom shares stories from his decades-long friendship with Bamberger.

Seasons at Selah: The Legacy of Bamberger Ranch Preserve is published by Texas A&M University Press and sponsored by The Meadows Center. Learn more about the event at http://bit.ly/SelahBookSign.
