The Big Outside: A Descriptive Inventory of the Big Wilderness Areas of the United States

They describe for each the diversity of its flora and fauna, threats of industrial exploitation or commercial development, and legal status as a protected area. With practical information and a sense of urgency, The Big Outside is both a guide and an inspiration for all those interested in seeing and preserving what's left of wild America. Illustrations.
