Before European contact, California was home to an abundance of large animals, including some of the largest grizzly bears in North America.  For an exploration of the ecological wealth of Old California, tune in to The Living Earth Connection on Sunday, May 29 at 9:30 a.m. PST on http://www.kmud.org.  Host Amy Gustin presents selections from A State of Change: Forgotten Landscapes of California by ecological historian and artist Laura Cunningham.   The destruction of ecosystem abundance by totalitarian agriculture is well documented in the history of California. Taking stock of what was lost helps us put our current situation in perspective.  Be sure to check out the book for yourself.  Laura beautifully reconstructs forgotten landscapes in her paintings as well as prose.
