Appeared in Choice on 1998-07:
Pezeshki's book is not a scholarly work in the conventional sense; it is an emotional book written from the heart, based on a deep and abiding love of the particular landscape of the upper Clearwater National Forest. A spectacular, rugged country at the crest of the Bitterroot Mountains in eastern Idaho bordering Montana, much of the area is roadless. It has been the focus of many decades of forest management controversies, where ecological, economic, political, policy, and personal career agendas have clashed. The book is loaded with opinion and opionated assertions and freely uses loaded terms and caricatures, e.g., "timber beasts" and "Rainbozos." Pezeshki makes no attempt at a true case study where each side of a problem is fully developed in dispassionate, detached terms. But that was not his intent. The book is thought-provoking and useful in evaluating human values and ethics relative to ecologically-sensitive areas. Numerous references to more scholarly works are the basis of many of the author's opinions. General readers. S. A. Carlson; Humboldt State University
