Voyageur Country by Robert Treuer
Book DescriptionExamines the beauty, history, and controversy of Voyageurs National Park.Over 250,000 people visit Minnesota's only national park each year. This popularity raises crucial questions: Can timberwolves thrive amid snowmobiles and jet-skis? Can the thin layer of fragile soil atop the Precambrian shield, the oldest exposed rock on earth, survive the feet of campers? Voyageur Country explores these quandaries and presents the only complete history of this environmentally important region.Voyageur Country describes the environmental significance of the park, beginning with its geologic and glacial history and continuing through current flora and fauna. Treuer then examines human influences on the land, including those of the Ojibwe Indians, French voyageurs, lumber barons, and wilderness advocates. The birth of the modern incarnation of Voyageurs as a national park is detailed, with accounts of the contributions of Sigurd Olson and other conservationists.The first paperback edition of this modern classic includes an updated preface and chronology. Voyageur Country is an important launching point for considering the policy that guides our relationship with the land.
