More About This Book

Overview

Stephen Law's dream job had him working in the nation's best environmentâ€" its forests. Raised on a farm in rural Maine, Stephen became a civil engineer for the U.S. Forest Service, and A Forest Environment was written from his experiences. He loved the woods and the animals that lived there, hunted, fished and loved to camp and explore.

In a chronicle spanning two generations, Stephen shares his adventures in the wild, as well as the insights of his father, a veteran of the Maine woods, in the early 1900s, working for the paper industry.

Join Stephen as he comes face-to-face with a bear for the first time, catches 22 trout on 22 casts and hunts mountain goats. Traveling all the way from the woods of Maine to the forests of Alaska, Stephen learns how engineers for the U.S. Forest Service built roads and bridges so the forest resources could be managed to meet the needs of the greatest number of people in the long run. He shares these lessons of the twentieth century with readers of the twenty-first century in an intimate and humorous story-telling style.

Advocates of maintaining our nation's forests, casual outdoor enthusiasts, and those completely new to the idea of 'the great outdoors' will discover the charm and wonder to be found in A Forest Environment.

Pack your camping gear and get your fishing rod and hunting rifle because A Forest Environment is going to take you on an adventure of a lifetime.

'Whether your interest is forestry, fishing, or geography, you will find much to enjoy in A Forest Environment. Steve Law, retired USFS engineer, shares his many years of work experience in the forests of the United States, and he does so with humor and telling insights. A bonus in this volume is his father's diary recounting his own years of work in the woods of Maine. This is a captivating book.' Vaughn & Phoebe Hardesty, New Gloucester, Maine
