A compelling story of place, Steward’s Fork explores northwest California’s magnificent Klamath Mountains―a region that boasts a remarkable biodiversity, a terrain so rugged that significant landscape features are still being discovered there, and a wealth of natural resources that have been used, and more recently abused, by humans for millennia. James K. Agee, a forest ecologist with more than fifty years experience in the Klamaths, provides a multidimensional perspective on this region and asks: how can we most effectively steward this spectacular landscape toward a sustainable future? In an engaging narrative laced with personal anecdotes, he introduces the dynamics of the Klamath’s ecosystems, including its geology and diverse flora and fauna, and then discusses its native cultures and more recent inhabitants, laying out the effects of industries such as logging, mining, water development, and fishing. Assuming that people will continue to have a close tie to the Klamaths, Agee introduces the principles of restoration ecology to offer a vision of how we can responsibly meet the needs of both people and natural organisms, including plants, fish, and wildlife. This debate over the future of the Klamath’s rich landscape widens into a provocative meditation on nature, culture, and our relationship with the earth itself.

From the Inside Flap:

"Steward's Fork provides us with a comprehensive and highly readable guide to the natural and human history of the complex and insular Klamath Mountain Region, all done from a wonderfully personal perspective. Agee's love of this land, its waters, and its people is obvious; and this affection, combined with his lifetime of ecological study, brings great credibility to his perspectives on its future stewardship. An essential read for anyone interested in the natural resources, peoples, and future of the Klamath Mountains."―Jerry F. Franklin, coeditor of Towards Forest Sustainability and coauthor of Conserving Forest Biodiversity

"Steward's Fork brilliantly weaves the geological, biological and cultural histories of the Klamath Mountains into a compelling account of place. In a captivating and easy to read style, Agee demonstrates how place-based ecosystem management can help sustain the diverse needs of the region's unique land and people."―Michael P. Dombeck, Chief Emeritus, U.S. Forest Service and coauthor of From Conquest to Conservation
