About this book

The Udaipur Wildlife Sanctuary is situated 14.5 km west of Bettiah town in the West Champaran district of Bihar, India. The name of the sanctuary was in honour of Sri Udai Singh, one of the successors of Bettiah estate and owners of these forests before independence. It is predominantly a forested wetland, located on an oxbow lake (Sareyaman) and is also one of the important sites for migratory birds in Bihar. This book provides updated information on 283 taxa under 225 genera and 71 families. The book is presented in eight sections dealing with an introduction followed by forest types, botanical history, floral analysis, economically important plants, threats and suggested measures, plant of presentation and taxonomic account. The book has been also enriched with maps of the study area and 349 digital images of plants. The book will be very useful to policymakers and researchers of this region and also encourage many other researchers and intellectuals to undertake similar research in other parts of the state.

Media reviews

"The Agony of an American Wilderness is destined to be a classic case history study of the political/psychological/social/legal 'game that people play' relative to the national forest management. Until Congress sees fit to sever the Gordian Knot that increasingly binds federal forest managers, such political passion plays are the likely future for the management of federal lands."
– Jack Ward Thomas, Boone and Crockett Professor of Wildlife Conservation, University of Montana; Chief Emeritus, U.S. Forest Service

"Journalist MacDonald (who was born and raised in the region) examines the communities that are caught in the crossfire of this debate and argues that the "zero-cut" philosophy of forest resource management is too extreme."
Scitech Book News

"He has done us all a service in laying out, in a down-to-earth style, the history and nature of the forest, and the pros and cons of the opposing camps' arguments."
The Philadelphia Inquirer

"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, program director, the Foundation for Research on Economics and the Environment

"Interviews, a history of regional logging and environmentalism, and a look at locals versus tourists make this a must-read for those who believe heated environmental controversies only exist on the west coast."
Western Pennsylvania History
