SAVANNA

Make a more human life through better human habitat.

Among my fellow nature geeks, lawns have received a bad wrap. That’s understandable; lawns are heavy drinkers, they have chemical dependencies, and they seem to be unproductive members of society. But, what do lawns produce?

AUTHOR

Nate Chisholm


Nate’s biography has shaped his ideas and his ideas have shaped his life. Most important among those ideas are this series: That large animals (megafauna) have dramatically shaped the vegetation of this planet. That mega-fauna and the vegetation they have created, in turn shaped the human psyche. The modern world we find ourselves in, and the problems we find in it, are the result of complications in these relationships.

The World We Expected At Birth


Over the last decade and a half, my dreamy eco-philosophy has run into the hard reality of working on ranches around the world. It was this unusual (and uncomfortable) combination that provided me with inspiration for my 2017 galley proof, Savanna: How Modern Problems were Born Out of Prehistoric Extinctions. In this book, I lay out the insights I received from close encounters with lions, ill-fated attempts to live without modern technology, and all the things I learned.

Fascinating, illuminating, fun, and important!

Big Announcement

We had a fantastic season this year. After six years of management, including some real hardships and struggles, we came through to the other side. About mid-way through the season in 2021, about a year and a half ago, something clicked into to place. The grass just started to produce, and since then, I have […]

Savanna was a fascinating read....It offers an alternative paradigm through which we can view our world.
