Overview

The high-profile campaign to protect and preserve the Pacific Northwest's ancient forests has been a hot environmental issue for the past 25 years, and remains so today. Tree Huggers is an incisive and spirited account of this ongoing conflict and the people at the forefront of the battle. Focusing on Oregon, the state at the forefront of the forest debate since the early 1970s, this fast-paced account retells the early history of logging on public lands and the origins of the forest campaign in the wilderness wars of the 1970s and early 1980s. It explains the belated efforts by scientists to understand the ecology of old-growth forests and the stubborn refusal by the Forest Service to heed the early warnings from within its own ranks that the forests were being overcut. Covering a vast amount of information in concise chapters, the book introduces forest activists, the lands they love, and the politicians who tried to thwart their efforts at every turn.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Freelance environmental journalist Durbin has written a compelling but one-sided view of the fight over the old-growth forests of the Pacific Northwest. Well represented in her book are the leaders of many of the most important local environmental groups such as the Oregon Natural Resources Council, Save America's Forests and the Western Ancient Forest Campaign. Missing are interviews with leaders of the wood-products industry and members of congress who take a conservative approach toward preserving these ancient ecosystems. Disappointingly, the book is much more a chronicle of events than an analysis of their significance. Rather than probe for reasons behind what she views as President Clinton's anti-environmental actions, Durbin simply writes: "Disregarding pleas from environmentalists, President Clinton inexplicably signed this `logging without laws' measure." Nonetheless, a good deal of interesting material is packed into these pages, including descriptions of tensions between national and local environmental groups and the role that major charitable groups (Pew Charitable Trust, the Rockefeller and Bullitt foundations) have played in shaping grassroots political strategies.
