I PREFER REDWOODS TO DEADWOODS

(Truth-out.org)

"Darren Frederick Speece's Defending Giants: The Redwood Wars and the Transformation of American Environmental Politics (University of Washington Press, 2017) is a dense, substantial book (not for the faint of heart), yet every bit worth the effort needed to get through it to the end. A "good read," it is itself something of an endangered species, to wit eloquent, inspiring, eminently readable nonfiction with precious lessons for those fighting the ever-greater environmental destruction wrought by corporate greed."

  2. You're welcome. I remember watching The Lorax on TV back in the 70s, and it seems we're surrounded by too many Once-lers these days.
