About this book

When astonished Europeans first spotted the vast pine forests of North America – forests teeming with trees twice as tall as even the tallest pine trees in England – the economic and military potential was immediately evident. In that preindustrial age, the lumber and pitch that could be harvested from those forests represented resources worth fighting for. The forests of North America would play an important part in the development of the emerging United States and in the ensuing centuries. In White Pine, Andrew Vietze turns his attention to the part that these evergreens played in peace, war, the building of cities, and forming laws.

He spends half the year working as a seasonal ranger in Baxter State Park, stationed at an old sporting camp called Twin Pines.
