"An unusual and brave book, one that demonstrates that personal integrity is more important than received professional wisdom."—The Los Angeles Times Book Review

In 1988 Richard Manning, a reporter for the Montana Missoulian, blew the whistle on two out-of-state logging companies that had clear-cut a swath the size of Delaware through the forests of the Northern Rockies. Manning's articles won his paper an award but cost him his job. In Montana logging is big business, with a very long arm, and very few newspapers have the courage to offend the industry. This galvanizing and courageous book is at once the story of Manning's personal odyssey and a front line report on the destruction of the American woodlands and its cover up by much of the press. As path-clearing investigative journalism, Last Stand evokes comparison with the work of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein; as an impassioned defense of nature, it belongs to the great tradition that extends from John Muir to Edward Abbey.
