Inhaltsangabe: This is the first comprehensive history of Olympic National Park, and a case study of the need for citizen action to protect our natural areas. As a seasonal ranger in Olympic National Park early in his career, Carsten Lien discovered a shocking truth: Flouting the law, and contrary to public expectation, the National Park Service was logging the very land it was supposed to preserve.
