About this book

&i;"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"&o; - Lawrence R. Stritch, President of the Eastern Panhandle Native Plant Society of West Virginia.

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"
