Ketchum's lovely color photographs of landscape and nature are accompanied by Callison's essay on the history and policies of the US Forest Service and the need for reform. The pictures are captioned with statistical narrative about how much is gone or is being destroyed, how much has been spent and mis-spent, and such; but, intentionally, little or no information about the site is given--the photographer's intent is to encourage universal appreciation of life- forms and, in some cases, to point out the ironies of contemporary landscape photography. No index or bibliography. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
