About this book

Part armchair travelogue, part guide book, this projected three-volume series - divided into the western, central, and eastern United States - will introduce readers to all 155 national forests across the country. "This Land" is the only comprehensive field guide that describes the natural features, wildernesses, scenic drives, campgrounds, and hiking trails of our national forests, many of which - while little known and sparsely visited - boast features as spectacular as those found in our national parks and monuments. Each entry includes logistical information about size and location, facilities, attractions, and associated wilderness areas. For about half of the forests, Robert H. Mohlenbrock has provided sidebars on the biological or geological highlights, drawn from the "This Land" column that he was written for "Natural History" magazine since 1984. Superbly illustrated with colour photographs, botanical drawings, and maps, this book is loaded with information, clearly written, and easy to use.

Media reviews

To my knowledge, there is no other title that assembles the information gathered in this book in such a comprehensive and helpful manner.... This Land will be a singular, indispensable and definitive title on the national forests for some time to come. - John A. Murray, author of Writing about Nature "This Land adeptly conveys the sense of awe that characterizes our national forests. In the end, this volume will help us and future generations understand and appreciate the wealth of this land and remind us of the importance of being responsible stewards of the people's land today and for future generations." - Mike Dombeck, Chief Emeritus, U.S. Forest Service "Americans are very mobile today and many have become disillusioned with the masses encountered in the national parks... the national forests are a national secret to most people. [This Land] will begin to unfurl that secret." - Lawrence R. Stritch, President of the Eastern Panhandle Native Plant Society of West Virginia"
