Even before the United States was a nation, fur traders crossed the continent, capturing and killing millions of beavers for pelts. The impact of this, according to environmental journalist Ben Goldfarb, was profound. In his new book, Eager: The Surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter, Goldfarb traces the history of the fur trade and explains how eliminating beavers from ecosystems changed the landscape in ways we are still figuring out. Today, a growing coalition of “Beaver Believers” are working to restore those ecosystems—and the beavers that lived in them—to make healthier, more sustainable habitats, both for humans and nonhumans alike. Everyone wins when we coexist peacefully, and Goldfarb explains how, and why, at Elliott Bay.
