Olympic Battleground: Creating & Defending Olympic National Park - by Carsten Lien
Olympic Battleground: Creating & Defending Olympic National Park (2nd Edition)
by Carsten Lien
Published by Mountaineers Books
A groundbreaking Work of History
As a seasonal ranger and naturalist in Olympic National Park early in his career, Carsten Lien discovered a shocking truth: Flouting the law, and contrary to public expectation, the National Park Service was logging the very land it was supposed to preserve. Lien vowed to uncover the story behind the destruction and then spent thirty years doing so. In his seminal work, Olympic Battleground, he documented more than one hundred years of political chicanery, citizen activism, bureaucratic failure, and the loss of primeval forest - and created the first comprehensive history of Olympic National Park.
Mountaineers Books is proud to reissue this classic of historical investigation.
