Book News Annotation:

Langston (environmental studies, U. of Wisconsin-Madison) documents the Forest Service's mismanagement of the Blue Mountains of northeastern Oregon and southeastern Washington and its use of practices, such as fire prevention and insect eradication, that led to ecological disaster in the area's forests.
