About this book

Before Forks, a small town on Washington's Olympic Peninsula, became famous as the location for Stephenie Meyer's Twilight book series, it was the self-proclaimed "Logging Capitol of the World" and ground zero in a regional conflict over the fate of old growth forests. Since Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist William Dietrich wrote the first edition of The Final Forest in 1992, logging in Forks has given way to tourism, especially related to the vampire theme in the Twilight books, but the town's forest products history should not be forgotten.

A new introduction recounts how forest policy and practices have changed since the early 1990s. Dietrich also tells us what has happened in Forks and where the actors who were so important to the timber wars are now.

Media reviews
In writing as lush as the threatened forests he describes, William Dietrich captures why the battle isn't merely for the ancient forests of the Pacific Northwest and California but for the health of the planet itself. -Michael L. Fischer, former Executive Director, Sierra Club "William Dietrich has gone to the heart of the greatest forest left in North America and returned with a clear and compelling story of why so many people are fighting over it." -Timothy Egan, author of The Big Burn "Dietrich presents in an easy-to-read narrative style the point of view of various participants in this war, from the logger whose way of life is threatened to a biologist concerned with saving the Northern spotted owl. Highly recommended." -Library Journal "A remarkably readable and lucid account." -Audubon Magazine "The best book about the environment that I've read in a year."-Newsday
