Robert Michael Pyle With David Guterson: A Portrait Of Washington Logging says
Logging remains a controversial political, economic, and environmental issue in Washington state–including this summer’s sale of rights in Tiger Mountain State Forest. Robert Michael Pyle’s Wintergreen: Rambles in a Ravaged Land, first published 30 years ago, looks at the human and environmental impacts of the logging industry in southwest Washington’s Willapa Hills. The book–chosen by Bainbridge author David Guterson for republication by Seattle-based Pharos Editions–won the coveted John Burroughs Medal for Distinguished Nature Writing. Pyle and Guterson will appear in conversation for a discussion of this landmark work, the state of the logging industry today, and why this “much-admired,” (Seattle PI) 30-year-old work should be on every Washingtonian’s bookshelf.
