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.
