His hard-fought wisdom and keen observations are a gift to all of us and this book is true to everything I've known Tony to be: funny, raw, vulnerable, and real. His stark honesty helps us all reflect on ways we are often to blame for our biggest challenges. Holistic Management can unlock the potential for productivity and diversity on our land, but also living in a way where we can see and fulfill our own potential.

--Cory Carman, fourth-generation rancher; mother

Through the pages, I found myself becoming more aligned with my dignity and self-worth, recognizing the tremendous value that land stewards offer. If we want intact grasslands for the next seven generations, we must work with a sense of urgency.

--Amber Smith, program director for Women in Ranching, Western Landowners Alliance

This book is truly about growth from soil to your soul. Embedded in the space between the beautifully crafted words is an invitation for us all to practice our lives as if all life depends upon it. Because it does and Tony proves it.

Be prepared to be surprised.

--Christopher Cooke, Holistic Management field professional and ecological outcome verifier

As a next-generation land manager facing the threats of climate change, biodiversity loss, and an uncertain sociopolitical future, I look to the champions of the soil surface to help guide my decisions to help reverse these trends. Tony Malmberg is one such man.

--Cody Spencer, bison rancher; Holistic Management practitioner

Tony's story is eloquent, joy-providing, and as complete as it can be. The loss of life on this planet is a serious issue. Tony reminds us to ask, "How must we behave, what must we do to promote life--at, above, and below the ground level?"

--Kelly Brink, rancher and student of rangeland herbivory, Deer Creek-Sandhills Ranch Properties (TEI)

There is an old rancher adage: "If we can just get the cows to green grass in the spring." Farmers, ranchers, ecologists, environmentalists, and others with a conservation ethos understand that HM principles are not easily understood or applied. Green Grass in the Spring provides tremendous clarity as we see through the eyes and learn from the life experiences of Tony Malmberg.

--Ron Bolze, professor of rangeland management; executive director of Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition
