2011 Outstanding Title, University Press Books for Public and Secondary School LibrariesWinner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award Before Forks, a small town on Washington�s Olympic Peninsula, became famous as the location for Stephenie Meyer�s Twilight book series, it was the self-proclaimed �Logging Capital of the World� and ground zero in a regional conflict over the fate of old-growth forests. Since Pulitzer Prize�winning journalist William Dietrich first published The Final Forest in 1992, logging in Forks has given way to tourism, but even with its new fame, Forks is still a home to loggers and others who make their living from the surrounding forests. The new edition recounts how forest policy and practices have changed since the early 1990s and also tells us what has happened in Forks and where the actors who were so important to the timber wars are now.

As we proceed into the new millennium, an ancient notion is taking root in defence of the Earth-that Nature is sentient. For those who have pondered this possibility, Sacred Trees, Sacred People of the Pacific Northwest is timely and relevant. For those who are certain of the sacredness of Nature, this book will inspire. Sacred Trees, Sacred People is an exploration of our relationship with Nature embodied by trees within the Pacific Northwest. Each chapter resurrects the story of a real tree held sacred by communities throughout the region and asks the question, "What is the nature of relationship with this tree, and what is the result?" Why focus on trees within the Pacific Northwest? This is a region that has experienced intense conflict over the management of the largest remaining forests spanning two countries within North America. It is also a region that has inspired much scientific, philosophical, entrepreneurial, and social creativity. To date, no book yet published about trees connects current events, Pacific Northwestern culture and spirituality to our relationship with trees. Since 1994, author Sharon McCann has lived in the Pacific Northwest. She first encountered the passion that some people feel about trees when she heard them remark that trees are sentient. "Impossible!" she thought, but then she became curious. In 1998 she began to journey within the Pacific Northwest-into British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and Northern California-looking for sentient trees. She would look for relationships between people and trees, she decided, for that would indicate communication and perhaps sentience. She discovered trees that became catalysts for personal and community change, and people who seemed to be ordained by trees. The author's keen observation and telling of local histories reveal common and uncommon men and women of the Pacific Northwest, including loggers, treesitters, big tree hunters, scientists, and ordinary citizens. While the focus is regional, the stories have universal appeal because many of us are seeking to reconnect with Nature as we fear its irreparable destruction.

The classic key to identifying native trees of the Pacific Coast, updated to reflect changes in the names of trees since publication of the first edition. Identifies native trees, and some widely introduced or naturalized species, of the Pacific Coast region, from British Columbia to Baja California. In this edition, Latin names of trees that grow in California conform to the University of California's 1993 Jepson Manual, and more recent name changes. From the Finders series of pocket guides to native plants and animals of the U.S. and Canada; like all plant guides in the series, this book uses a dichotomous key format for accurate identification.
