This gracefully written story shows all that is lost when we destroy ancient stands of trees--as revealed through a 60-year study of the flora and fauna in an Oregon Coast Range forest that is selectively logged and finally clear-cut.
Delineates the values of old-growth forests, identifies conflicts over their management, and explores creative solutions. Also predicts potential damage the environment will suffer, and problems the languishing timber industry will face if current practices are continued. Cloth edition (unseen), $22.
