Defending Giants: The Redwood Wars and the Transformation of American Environmental Politics
by Darren Frederick Speece Author
The history of over 150 years of conflict over the redwood forests of northern California. Logging has eroded these forests to almost nothing, and for over fifty years environmental activists have put their lives on the line to try to preserve what remains of them. Darren Frederick Speece gives a wealth of history and context to the many players and interests interwoven in the sometimes violent conflicts over the fate of these trees, and shows how the Redwood Wars had a lasting impact on environmental politics and discourse in the US.
