Read an Excerpt

In BC and Ontario the fate of intact (unroaded) old growth forests is, as it should be, a subject of heated controversy. But comparatively little is said about the fate of old-growth forests in partially developed watersheds. Even less is said about the future of Canada's ever-expanding second and third growth forests. Yet it is these tracts of land that the logging companies are turning to as the last unprotected stands of old-growth are logged. And the decisions that those companies and the governments that reglate them make about those lands may well determine the future of many wildlife species in much of the country.
