The fascinating story of one of America's most beloeved trees. Treasured for its beautiful forests, yet relentlessly harvested for its valuable wood, the coast redwood has become one of the most enduring icons of the American environmental movement. This is the first illustrated book to offer a c omprehensive account of the ecology and human history associated with Earth's tallest tree. With more than 230 color and 100 historic black-and-white photos on glossy paper, this volume covers the entire range of coast redwood, from the Big Sur coast to the southwestern corner of Oregon, describing the tree's origins, distribution, life history, forest ecosystems, and uses by wildlife. It also documents the evolution of redwood logging, chronicles the 100-year struggle for redwood preservation, and explores contemporary management issues in redwood parks and timberlands.
