Tongass by Robert Glenn Ketchum

Book Description

The Tongass: Alaska's Vanishing Rain Forest is a classic work of environmental protest that reports on the profound political developments that have taken place in recent years and documents the continuing struggle to protect the tongass. Robert Glenn Ketchum's extraordinary photographs present the enduring natural wonders of the Tongass, as well as the damage inflicted by clear-cutting, while the text recounts the shortsighted policies implemented by industry and the federal government. First published by Aperture in 1987, The Tongass played a vital role in Congress's passage of the Tongass Timber Reform Bill in 1990. This marked a turning point in the attempts to balance the management of this nation forest - the largest in the United States. The Tongass is the rarest and most intact temperate old-growth rain forest in the world. Its preservation is crucial, as his important book reveals.
