Hard to Find


Roads have become an important concern in re-wilding talks in North America. Not the highways, but the 500,000 miles of roads built in federal forest lands to access natural resources and abandoned when the resources--timber, coal, or other minerals--were removed. This important book features a collection of essays by some of today's finest nonfiction writers, including Peter Matthiessen, David Petersen, Stephanie Mills, Phil Condon, and many more. They explore the devastation, carnage, loss of wildlands, and uselessness of the modern system of roadworks through public lands, and give ideas about how to preserve what road-less wildlands we have left. All royalties from the book will be donated to Wildlands CPR, a nonprofit organization dedicated to reviving and protecting wild places by promoting road removal, preventing road reconstruction, and limiting motorized recreation.
