No Place Distant by David G. Havlick
Book DescriptionWhile many of the roads on public lands provide a great service with relatively little harm, others create significant problems - from habitat fragmentation to noise pollution to increased animal mortality - with little or no benefit. In No Place Distant, author David Havlick presents for the first time a comprehensive and in-depth examination of the more than 550,000 miles of roads that crisscross our national parks, national forests, Bureau of Land Management lands, and wildlife refuges, considering how they came to be; their ecological, financial, and societal costs; and what can be done to ensure that those roads are as environmentally benign and cost-effective as possible, while remaining functional and accessible. The book: - places the profusion of roads on our public lands in historical context - offers an overview of the ecological effects of roads - explores the policies, politics, and economics that have fostered road-building on public lands - considers the contentious topic of motorized recreation - examines efforts to remove roads and restore degraded lands to health Bringing together an impressive range and depth of information along with a thoughtful analysis of the Issues, No Place Distant offers a definitive look at the debate over roads on public lands. With its well-crafted prose and extensive documentation, it is an unparalleled resource for anyone concerned with the health or management of public lands in the United States.
