About this book

The Appalachain Forest describes a place once rich with old-growth woodlands, American chestnuts ten feet in diameter, tulip poplars more than two hundred feet tall, warblers and wild turkey abundant beyond imagining whose landscape has been systematically devastated by cutting and mining. More than a biological overview, the book explores mountain life and its many contrasts, such as generations of human poverty amid a wealth of natural resources.
