Forests for the People: The Story of America’s Eastern National Forests by Christopher Johnson and David Govatski (review)

Forests for the People: The Story of America’s Eastern National Forests by Christopher Johnson... BOOK REVIEW Forests for the People: The Story of America's Eastern National Forests Christopher Johnson and David Govatski Island Press, 2000 M Street NW, Suite 650, Washington, DC 20036; URL: http://www.islandpress.org. 2013, paperback US$ 35 (ISBN 978-1610910101), cloth US$ 70 (ISBN 978-1610910095), 408 p, 6 x 9 in. Forests for the People tells the story of the acquisition and restoration of much of America's eastern forest land. The book is well organized and well written in a clear, jargon-free style. The authors have incorporated a productive blend of both historical and on-site research to develop the story of the creation and survival of the nation's eastern national forests, using the case study method to illuminate current issues and challenges in a sampling of eastern forests. With its clear, straightforward style, Forests for the People is a valuable information source for researchers, students, and concerned members of the public. One of my few criticisms of the work is the paucity of maps to identify and locate the areas being explored in the text. Additional maps would help clarify the discussions and make them more meaningful. The work stresses the importance of the involvement of both foresters and concerned locals http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Native Plants Journal University of Wisconsin Press
