Kristin Ohlson's writing has appeared in NYT, Orion, Discover, Gourmet, Oprah, and many other publications. Her magazine work has been anthologized in Best American Science Writing and Best American Science Writing. Los Angeles Times called The Soil Will Save Us “a hopeful book and a necessary one...a fast-paced and entertaining shot across the bow of mainstream thinking about land use.” Sweet in Tooth and Claw is a deeply hopeful book for the climate crisis, showing real solutions from a wide-ranging set of case studies and interviews. For example, one chapter looks at how changed ranching practices in northeast Nevada are transforming desert into wetlands, showing it's possible to rehydrate the west. In another, Ohlson writes about a community trying to reclaim a river in the Bronx, which was diverted to the sewer. Residents there are working to restore it and the natural environment. Dozens of other examples throughout the book show how changing our thought patterns on nature will also help us become more generous and nurturing with each other.
