New book explores the ecology of the Tongass National Forest

A lovely new book arrived recently at Earthjustice headquarters. Salmon in the Trees is a beautiful, coffee-table book from photographer Amy Gulick, featuring essays by several natural history writers. The book explores the interconnected ecology of America's largest temperate rainforest, the Tongass National Forest.

As many of you know, Earthjustice has been working to protect the Tongass for decades. Our latest effort is a lawsuit to end a Bush-era exemption for the forest from protection under the Roadless Area Conservation Rule. (Video after the jump.)

Our former executive director, Buck Parker, is preparing a review of this book in the next edition of Earthjustice's newsletter InBrief. Until then, here is a preview of Amy Gulick's fascinating story of a landscape few have seen, but many want protected.

Very informative and trustworthy blog. Please keep updating with great posts like this one. I have booked marked your site and am about to email it to a few friends of mine that I know would enjoy reading

RE: SALMON IN THE TREES is much , much more than a "coffee table book". It contains great content by significant contributors. The writing is superb. Seldom have I been to captivated by a book. The intent is to influence key legislators and the public both in photography and writing - to act to preserve this crucially important area.
