The Tragedy of Industrial Forestry

Book - 1994
Rate this:
The volume itself is fit to win a prize for elegant, effective design; the content--excruciatingly ugly-- demonstrates the greed/stupidity/insouciance of the rape-and-run companies that have ignored, or been unable to comprehend, the public interest and public relations. This mob now whines about the successes of the conservation groups. Did they not realize the pressures generated by trashing the forests? Powerful color photos (98) are aerial shots of ravished forests in the western US, the South, Northeast, Alaska, and across Canada--a virtual Brazil in its killing frenzy. A big (12x13.5"), bold, depressing book that will have much influence. Ends with a hopeful plan. Published by Sierra Club Books and David Brower's Earth Island Press. Distributed by Random House.
