"I have been waiting a long time for this book. And it's even more beautiful and useful than I ever imagined. Within this crucial, revolutionary volume can be found many trails through wild forest, all leading to a grander future. A problem as vast and appalling as clear-cutting needs a brilliant solution, and here it is, from the forester who perfected it. Leon Neel has been my hero since I heard about him, and now Sutter and Way have my deepest gratitude. I call landowners and timber managers everywhere, and anyone else who cares about a piece of land, to read this book. This is not an oxymoron--you can cut a forest and, at the same time, save it too!" --Janisse Ray, author of Ecology of a Cracker Childhood
"Herbert Stoddard and his acolyte Leon Neel made a revolution in forestry among the longleaf pines of Georgia's Red Hills. More than applied scientists, they were artists and designers of genius, makers of ecologically balanced landscapes that were also gorgeous parks and hunters' paradises. Now Paul Sutter, Bert Way, and especially Neel, himself, bring us the comprehensive narrative, which is not only enlightening but irresistably charming." --Jack Temple Kirby, author of Mockingbird Song: Ecological Landscapes of the South
"This warm and fine personal look at the legendary forest management practices of Herbert Stoddard and Leon Neel will appeal to a variety of readers. Foresters and landowners will profit from its detailed descriptions of the Stoddard-Neel approach to managing forests, one based on old-fashioned woodsmanship, a deep familiarity with longleaf pine forests and a primary concern with the sustainability of the forest ecosystem. Neel s stories and recollections of growing up in the Piney Woods are pleasurable in and of themselves, and they will reward anyone interested in the South and in Southern folkways." --Lawrence S. Earley, author of Looking for Longleaf: The Fall and Rise of an American Forest
