Book Description

Sept. 16 2003 Forest History Society Issues
"Canada's Forests" is the first book to provide an overall description of Canada's forests, their historical uses, and their current condition. The ten forest regions of Canada are examined, looking at how the human use of these forests has changed from the end of the last glacial period (10,000 years ago) to the present time. Ken Drushka analyses the changes in human attitudes towards the forests, detailing the rise of the late nineteenth-century conservation movement and its subsequent decline after World War I, the interplay between industry and government in the development of policy, the adoption of sustained yield policies after World War II, and the recent adoption of sustainable forest management in response to environmental concerns. Drushka argues that, despite the centuries of use, the Canadian forest retains a good deal of its vitality and integrity. Written in accessible language and aimed at a general readership, "Canada's Forests" will be a must-read for anyone interested in the debate about the current and future uses of this precious natural resource.

Review

"Drushka has done an admirable job of synthesizing the material in a way that will be of value to a general readership. I am impressed with the way [his] account addresses main themes in Canadian history; it should serve well as an introduction to Canadian forest history." Richard Rajala, Department of History, University of Victoria
