"Steen's book is a timely and needed contribution in a new cycle of change and controversy involving our profession." —The Journal of Forestry on The U.S. Forest Service: A History
About the Author
Harold K. Steen is the author of The Conservation Diaries of Gifford Pinchot; Forest and Wildlife Science in America: A History; Jack Ward Thomas: The Journals of a Forest Service Chief; and The U.S. Forest Service: A History. A former president of the Forest History Society, he currently teaches conservation history at New Mexico State University. He lives in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Excerpts from interviews with U.S. Forest Service chiefs whose tenures span fifty years create an intriguing history of the trends and developments of the U.S. Forest Service, a half-century of rapid change and controversies. From civil rights and wilderness management issues to environmental conflicts, The Chiefs Remember: The Forest Service, 1952-2001 bring a personal touch and is recommended reading for for any non-specialist general reader interested in the Forest Service's history or environmental policy development as a whole.
