Summary
The photos in this book reveal one aspect of our increasingly devastated Earth: the clearcutting of the forests of North America. From Prince William Sound in Alaska to the red hills of Georgia, from Nova Scotia to the high mountains of New Mexico, the industrial, extractive logging industry, encouraged and subsidized by federal and provincial governments, has stripped ancient trees from the soil through the timber extractive process called clearcutting -- either leaving regions deforested or creating tree plantations that do not resemble natural forests. - Introduction
