Salmon in the Trees

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.
