About this book

Provides a clear and evenhanded introduction to some of the most hotly disputed environmental issues facing the Blue Ridge mountain chain, including the invasion of exotic plants and insects, the explosive growth of suburban-style communities in natural areas, worsening air and water pollution, and the erratic management of national forests. Informative and highly readable, Blue Ridge 2020 takes a hard look at what is at risk in these mountains and what we – as the "owners" of the public lands – must do if we intend to preserve their future.
