As logging continues to rule the rural Northwest, Wintergreen's message is more important than ever. Set in the Willapa Hills of southwest Washington, both people and forest are threatened with extinction. Timeless among the literature of the land, Wintergreen is now back in print with a new afterword by the author.

About the Author:

Robert Michael Pyle is one of America's leading nature writers. His fifteen books include Chasing Monarchs, Where Bigfoot Walks, and Nabokov's Butterflies. He received a Ph.D. in ecology from Yale University and lives in rural Washington.

From Library Journal:

In the southwest corner of Washington State lie the Willapa Hills, a temperate, rain-drenched land of perennial greenness. Still the habitat of fungi, mosses, lichens, and ferns, they were once the home of "one of the greatest forests on earth." But as Pyle so articulately states, years of improvident lumbering practices and economic greed have despoiled the hills, decimated the wildlife, and rendered the future uncertain. Out of this, his chosen home, Pyle has created a collection of vividly responsive observations and speculations about the diversity and requirements of life, from butterfiles to bears. Written by the author of The Audubon Society Handbook for Butterfly Watchers (Scribner, 1984) , this book of essays will appeal to all caring observers of the ecosystem. Recommended.Carol J.
