Jack Ward Thomas: The Journals of a Forest Service Chief

Edited by Harold K. Steen

Forest Service chief during the early years of the Clinton administration, Thomas kept journals of his thoughts and daily experiences. The issues Thomas dealt with lie at the heart of recent Forest Service policy and controversy, starting with President Clinton’s Timber Summit in Portland, Oregon, dealing with the spotted owl issue, and the 1994 loss of fourteen firefighters in the Storm King Mountain fire in Colorado.
