Fire In Sierra Nevada Forests: A Photographic Interpretation of Ecological Change Since 1849
In Fire in Sierra Nevada Forests, George Gruell examines the woodlands through repeat photography: rephotographing sites depicted in historical photographs to compare past vegetation to present. The book asks readers to study the evidence, then take an active part in current debates over prescribed fire, fuel buildup, logging, and the management of our national forests.
