A textbook that is interesting as well as informative. The writing style makes it a swift read if you're going for a general overview of public lands management -- it grabs you with conflict, having both general and specific examples, and leaves you with a better understanding of and respect for the challenge of interdisciplinary public lands management. This book is also great for more careful reading; it identifies key players and laws surrounding government natural resource management agencies, and what problems still plague the agencies today. The only thing I found hard to follow was the chronology within each chapter. It seemed to me that there was a bit too much jumping around in time for me to be able to keep everything perfectly straight. After reading the first few pages of this book, I knew that I wanted to read the whole thing, whether or not I was required to, and coming from a college student, that speaks volumes for the appeal of this text.Was this review helpful?
