Abstract:

"From the timbered shores of the Pacific Northwest to the marble halls of Washington, DC, the choices about how we use our natural heritage are filled with controversy. Whether it is the protection of endangered species or meeting the needs of a growing public, the fate of public lands is constantly challenged. Visionary foresters Gifford Pinchot and Aldo Leopold shaped the debate for a hundred years. Their journey from the "wise use" of resources to the idea of a "land ethic" has defined the evolution of the Forest Service. The story is told from a wide variety of perspectives, including leading historians as well many of the participants, inside and outside the Forest Service."--Publisher's website.
