Sagamore Pub., Jan 1, 1999 - Sports & Recreation - 449 pages
Here is an ongoing, comprehensive assessment of trends, current situations, and the likely future of outdoor recreation supply and demand for the U.S. Readers can examine new and different aspects of the national demand, its resemblance to the past, and trends in the supply of outdoor recreation opportunities submitted from the private and public sectors. The technological, consumption-driven urban society of today demands a different mix of recreational pursuits and services and places a much heavier demand on our rich natural resources.
