Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

From Mitchell's perspective, that of an unabashed tree-hugger, there is a war going on in the land of the green: the American forest, besieged by various economic sectors, faces destruction. In this collection of 13 beautifully crafted articles published between 1981 and 1990, mostly in Audubon, Mitchell defines the enemy--be it timberman, developer, energy company, federal agency, etc.--and reports on forest protection strategies. But not all is voiced from the pulpit. "Papa Country," for example, revisits the Michigan woods of the youthful Ernest Hemingway, and "In Wildness Was Preservation of a Smile" offers an admirer's glimpse of Bob Marshall, the so-called Father of Wilderness. To save the forest, Mitchell, former editor of Sierra Club Books, urges that legions of tree-lovers take action. And this assemblage of lyric and fact should help politicize them.
