Synopsis: This work chronicles the struggle for the Douglas-fir region, from the first sustained contact between native American and Euro-American cultures to 1900, when Fredrick Weyerhaeuser's purchase of some of the area completed one of the largest land deals in US history.

From the Back Cover: "Robert Bunting offers us a fascinating and exemplary medley of regional, environmental, and social history. The research is thorough, the description vivid and compelling, the analysis forthright and persuasive, and the writing is clear and cogent. Above all, the author eloquently champions the imperiled beauty and biodiversity of the Pacific Northwest."--Alan Taylor, author of William Cooper's Town: Power and Persuasion on the Frontier of the Early American Republic

"This engaging and important book illuminates a great many dark corners and forgotten places beyond as well as in the Douglas-fir region. Blending narrative and analysis in wonderfully deft and readable ways, Bunting shows us two very different methods of managing land and water--and their consequences. This volume should enjoy a wide audience, both inside and outside academe."--James P. Ronda, author of Astoria and Empire

"Provides a dynamic and fascinating new view of the historical relationship between peoples and environment in the region."--Carlos Schwantes, author of The Pacific Northwest: An Interpretive History

"A meticulously sculpted and carefully researched inquiry into the relationship between culture and the natural world of the Douglas-fir bioregion in the Pacific Northwest. Bunting effectively moves his discussion beyond Richard White's classic study, Land Use, Environment, and Social Change, into the realm of the most advanced work in recent environmental history. A richly textured story of myth, illusion, abundance, and finally, ambiguity."--William G. Robbins, author of Colony and Empire: The Capitalist Transformation of the American West
