The Chiefs Remember: The Forest Service 1952 – 2001

James G. Lewis (ed.)

Excerpts from interviews with Forest Service chiefs whose tenures span fifty years. It was a half-century of rapid change and increasing controversy, marked by words that still clang with contention: wilderness, civil rights, public participation, clearcutting, ecosystem management, spotted owl, environmentalist, timber salvage.
