Rate this:
This is the first comprehensive history of Olympic National Park, and a case study of the need for citizen action to protect our natural areas. As a seasonal ranger in Olympic National Park early in his career, Carsten Lien discovered a shocking truth: Flouting the law, and contrary to public expectation, the National Park Service was logging the very land it was supposed to preserve. Lien vowed to uncover the story behind the destruction. In Olympic Battleground, Lien documents more than one hundred years of political chicanery, citizen activism, bureaucratic failure, and the loss of primeval forest.
