About this book

What is a forest? What are forests for? Who should control them? These are familiar questions, but the Allegheny casts them in a new light. The national environmental movement has become less willing to compromise since its victories in the Pacific Northwest, and the Allegheny is its newest proving ground. This book explains what activists are after, how the struggle differs from more familiar environmental battles and what it means for the future of the American landscape.

The Agony of an American Wilderness shifts our attention from the traditional battlegrounds of the wilderness movement, the old growth forests of the West, to the Allegheny National Forest. Here, Sam MacDonald offers us a fascinating glimpse of a damaged land on the mend and the people living in it.--Pete Geddes
