Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Five million acres of unprotected roadless forest remain in Oregon, stretching from the rain-drenched shores of the Pacific and Coast range, across the snow-covered Cascades to the Blue Mountains. These roadless public forests shelter ancient trees, protect our cleanest drinking water, and provide vital habitat for fish and wildlife. In Oregon Wild: Endangered Forest Wilderness, noted nature writer and conservation advocate Andy Kerr describes these wild forests, with 40 maps based on new research, 199 stunning color photographs, and a foreword by Kathleen Dean Moore. The book is both a guide and a celebration; it will be treasured by hikers and nature lovers in Oregon and beyond.

Synopsis:

With the aid of 40 maps based on new research and stunning color photographs, a noted conservation advocate describes the small fraction of wild forests that remain intact.

Synopsis:

Five million acres of unprotected roadless forest remain in Oregon, stretching from the rain-drenched shores of the Pacific and Coast range, across the snow-covered Cascades to the Blue Mountains, Wallowas, and Hells Canyon; from the Deschutes, John Day, Malheur, Klamath, Umpqua, Siskiyou, and Rogue basins to the ponderosa pine forests of the Ochoco, Winema, and Fremont. These roadless public forests shelter ancient trees, protect our cleanest drinking water, and provide vital habitat for fish and wildlife, including many of the Pacific Northwest's last healthy runs of wild salmon, steelhead, and trout, and numerous species of rare and imperiled flora and fauna. Their awe-inspiring landscapes provide stunning views, quiet inspiration, and outstanding recreational opportunities. Only a small fraction of Oregon's forests remain intact.
