An inspiring reminder of the incredible resource that is our public lands. --Brendan Leonard, author of The Camping Life and Surviving the Great Outdoors

Across 193 million acres of forests, mountains, deserts, watersheds, and grasslands, national forests provide a multitude of uses as diverse as America itself. They welcome 170 million visitors each year to hike, bike, paddle, ski, fish, and hunt. But the people's lands offer more than just recreation. Lost habitats are recovered, timber is harvested, and endangered wildlife is protected as part of the Forest Service's enduring mission.

In Our National Forests, Greg Peters gives an inside look at America's most important public lands and the people committed to protecting them and ensuring access for all. From the Forest Service growing millions of seedlings in the West each year, to their efforts to save the hellbender salamander in Appalachia, the story spans the breadth of the country and its diverse ecology. And people are at the center, whether the dedicated Forest Service members or the everyday citizens who support and tend to the protected lands near their homes.

This complete look at America's national forests--their triumphs, challenges, controversies, and vital programs--is a must-read for everyone interested in the history of America's most important public lands.
