KIRKUS REVIEW

This book on America's great National Forests and the Forest Service which administers them will come as good news to conservationists, nature lovers and the ardent vacationist. Starting with the story of Gifford Pinchot, the author takes us through the growth pains and reverses of over 50 years to the vast enterprise of today. Attention is paid to reforestation, development of recreational facilities, and the fight against forest fires. There are also stories and anecdotes on foresters and rangers. All in all, a brisk history of a famous government agency with a plea for further conservation
