Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Between 1933 and 1951, fires destroyed 335,000 acres of forest in western Oregon. Wells, a writer and editor at Oregon State University, recounts the fires and the cooperative efforts of foresters and citizens, including thousands of school children, to reforest the burnt ground. She also contemplates the now mature forest's fate in light of the ongoing conflict between timber interests, environmentalists, and those who invested themselves in what was to be timber forever.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The fate of ancient forests has been debated for decades in the Pacific West. In The Tillamook, Gail Wells takes up the question of younger forests, exploring the creation of a managed forest and what its story reveals about the historic and future role of second-growth forests in the West.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 175-179) and index.
