Forests for the People: The Story of America's Eastern National Forests
Forests for the People: The Story of America's Eastern National Forests, by Christopher Johnson and David Govatski, 2013. This meticulously researched book tells the story of how the eastern National Forests were saved after rapacious lumbering and devastating fires led to the creation of a forest conservation movement and the passage of the Weeks Act. It then examines a variety of issues facing the eastern National Forests today, using case studies from several locations. Both Johnson and Govatski are noted White Mountain historians, and Govatski worked for many years on the White Mountain National Forest. The Whites are the subject of the first chapter: "The Disappearing Forests of the White Mountains." 408 pp, 6" x 9."
