2 BERMAN, MICHAEL (PHOTOGRAPHY); REDDING, MARY ANNE (EDITOR) Gila - Two Volume Set.
Museum of New Mexico Press, Santa Fe: 2012. h Hardcovers with dustjackets in slip-case. Two volumes. Brand new books. 
The forests comprising the Gila National Forest and Wilderness in southwest New Mexico is the largest in the contiguous U.S., the least visited or photographed, the one most wild in nature. It is nestled at the nexus of four great ecosystems. It lies at the end of the Rocky Mountains after they slide down the North American continent like a glacier before breaking up into an archipelago of small ranges floating in a sea of grasslands. A couple hundred miles to the south, the Sierra Madre Mountains rise up, serrating Mexico for another two thousand miles. To the west lies the Sonoran Desert with its giant saguaros, and to the east spreads the Chihuahuan Desert, a minimalist dream of small ranges and desert grasslands. In its present state, the Gila is a functioning, high-quality ecosystem of remote forests and canyons. The Gila River courses through this land, the last undammed river in New Mexico. The heart of the Gila is its unspoiled wilderness. Noted environmentalist Aldo Leopold conceived the modern concept of "wilderness" here. It was designated the world's first wilderness area in 1924, and became the cornerstone of the National Wilderness Preservation System when the Wilderness Act was signed into law in 1961. For more than thirty years, celebrated photographer Michael P. Berman has explored the vast Gila, fascinated by the land and how people use and value it. He has wandered deep into the forest with his large-format camera, searching for the untrammeled, scraggly, and complex ecosystems, allowing the Gila to reveal itself. In this two-volume slip-cased edition, the untouched specialness of the Gila is captured in Berman's photographs and explored in fifteen essays by noted writers, natural historians, and environmentalists.

5 BURK, JOHN S. The Wildlife Of New England: A Viewer's Guide.
University of New Hampshire Press, Conway: 2011 s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The Essential Guide to Viewing New England Wildlife. With practical guidance, helpful tips, and informative overviews of each location, The Wildlife of New England invites you to discover more than 80 wildlife-viewing areas around New England. • Where are you most likely to spot a moose, black bear, or otter in the wild? • On what hilltop can you see thousands of migrating hawks in a single day? • Where might you see a basking shark, seal, or sea star? Experienced nature writer and photographer John S. Burk answers these questions and more in this unique guidebook. Organized by state, each viewing location is discussed in detail, including its natural habitats and their unique features, characteristic species to watch for and when to see them, and recommended trails, auto roads, and driving directions. The Wildlife of New England also offers informative introductions to 60 of the region's iconic animals organized by their natural habitats and shown in stunning photographs, many in color. "Even if you've lived in New England for decades and tromped its many trails, you'll see it anew through the keen eyes and wit of John Burk. Burk not only shows you wildlife, he evokes the wilderness still thriving in this densely populated region. This book is more than instruction; it is an invitation."—Elizabeth Farnsworth, author of Peterson Field Guide to Ferns and The Connecticut River Boating Guide: Source to Sea "In its breadth and depth and in Burk's passion for the region's natural world, his book has more than a faint echo of Thoreau. This book should prove invaluable to a wide audience of readers: daytrippers, hikers, birders, and wildlife enthusiasts in general."—Joseph Conforti, author of Imagining New England John S. Burk is a writer, photographer, and researcher who has written and worked for the AMC Images of America series, Harvard University Forest, Natural New England magazine, and local conservation groups.

8 DEGRAAF, RICHARD M.; YAMASAKI, MARIKO; LEAK, WILLIAM B. & LESTER, ANNA M. Landowner's Guide To Wildlife Habitat: Forest Management For The New England Region.
University of Vermont Press / University Press of New England, Lebanon: 2005. 1584654678 / 9781584654674 Constitutional Thiking Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
An easy-to-use guide for enhancing wildlife habitat quality, timber values, and the appearance of forest lands. This is a concise introduction to practical forest wildlife habitat management for private landowners, who own most of the forested habitat in New England, the eastern United States, and adjacent Canada. In non-technical terms, experts from the U.S. Forest Service provide useful information about plans that can improve forests, enhance production of forest products, increase the diversity of wildlife, and increase enjoyment of forest lands through sound forest management. The book discusses the history of land use and natural changes in forest environments, why species come and go, and how the scale and presence of special features can create a diversity of wildlife habitats.The authors explain management strategies that contribute to wildlife diversity, how to set goals and work with professional foresters to meet your goals, and project how managed lands will look in the future. They show how to determine what kinds of habitat will be used by various wildlife species, how to consider land capability and the mixture of habitat features necessary to attract desired species groups, and how to get started changing existing vegetative conditions through thoughtful management. Exceptional full-color illustrations, charts, and tables enhance the clear presentation of the text, geared specifically for landowners interested in getting started on improving habitat conditions on their land. "This book constitutes a big and bold salvo in the already contentious battles over the value of extensive uncut forests and the ecological effects of significant clearcuts. It is written by highly respected experts, and the goals of the book and of the forest management they advocate are clear—that more wildlife species are better."—Northern Woodlands "A comprehensive look at how forested properties can be managed to benefit wildlife and to be sources of forest products in a responsible manner."—Portland Press Herald "Useful resource for land trusts and woodlot owners looking to develop their own management plans." —Northeastern Naturalist, vol. 3 no.1 "If there is one fact the book brings home it is that forests are always changing, and that the operative word may well be diversity."—The (Milford, NH) CABINET "This is the book landowners, foresters, and others have been waiting for. DeGraaf and Yamasaki have merged their encyclopedic knowledge of New England wildlife and habitat with the legendary silvicultural expertise of Bill Leak. The concepts of habitat management through silvicultural prescription are abundantly illustrated with relevant photography, as well as vivid computer graphic visualizations by Anna Lester that show changes through time across landscapes. More than just a text book on habitat and silvicultural application, this book provides important background on land use history and ecology of the northeast. This book will be useful to landowners considering their alternatives, and managers making decisions or needing to explain them."—David B. Kittredge, Extension Forester / Associate Professor, University of Massachusetts - Amherst Richard M. DeGraaf is Leader of the U.S. Forest Service Wildlife Habitat Research Unit at Amherst, Massachusetts.

9 HAYCOX, STEPHEN. Battleground Alaska: Fighting Federal Power In America's Last Wilderness.
University Press of Kansas, Lawrence: 2016. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
No American state is more antistatist than Alaska. And no state takes in more federal money per capita, which accounts for a full third of Alaska's economy. This seeming paradox underlies the story Stephen Haycox tells in Battleground Alaska, a history of the fraught dynamic between development and environmental regulation in a state aptly dubbed "The Last Frontier." Examining inconvenient truths, the book investigates the genesis and persistence of the oft-heard claim that Congress has trampled Alaska's sovereignty with its management of the state's pristine wilderness. At the same time it debunks the myth of an inviolable Alaska statehood compact at the center of this claim. Unique, isolated, and remote, Alaska's economy depends as much on absentee corporate exploitation of its natural resources, particularly oil, as it does on federal spending. This dependency forces Alaskans to endorse any economic development in the state, putting them in conflict with restrictive environmental constraint. Battleground Alaska reveals how Alaskans' abiding resentment of federal regulation and control has exacerbated the tensions and political sparring between these camps—and how Alaska's leaders have exploited this antistatist sentiment to promote their own agendas, specifically the opening of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling. Haycox builds his history and critique around four now classic environmental battles in modern Alaska: the establishment of the ANWR is the 1950s; the construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline in the 1970s; the passage of the Alaska National Interests Lands Conservation Act in 1980; and the struggle that culminated in the Tongass Timber Reform Act of 1990. What emerges is a complex tale, with no clear-cut villains and heroes, that explains why Alaskans as a collective almost always opt for development, even as they profess their genuine love for the beauty and bounty of their state's environment. Yet even as it exposes the potential folly of this practice, Haycox's work reminds environmentalists that all wilderness is inhabited, and that human life depends—as it always has—on the exploitation of the earth's resources. Stephen W. Haycox is Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of Alaska Anchorage. He is the author of many works including Alaska: An American Colony and Frigid Embrace: Politics, Economics and Environment in Alaska. "Battleground Alaska enlightens by linking legal, legislative, cultural, and environmental history to impressive effect. The book is also evenhanded in the process."—American Historical Review "Historians of the environment will do well to consider the lessons and understandings of Battleground Alaska."—Pacific Northwest Quarterly

10 HUNTLEY, JEN A. The Making Of Yosemite: James Mason Hutchings And The Origin Of America's Most Popular National Park.
University Press of Kansas, Lawrence: 2014. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Leader of the first tourist expedition into Yosemite in 1855, James Mason Hutchings became a tireless promoter of the valley—and of himself. Seeking to create an alternative to California's Gold Rush social chaos, Hutchings whetted the public enthusiasm for this unspoiled land by mass producing a lithograph of Yosemite Falls, while his Hutchings' California Magazine beat the drum for tourism. But because of his later legal imbroglios over the park, Hutchings was effectively written out of its history, and today he is largely viewed as an opportunist who made a career out of exploiting Yosemite. Now Jen Huntley removes the tarnish from Hutchings's image. She portrays him instead as a "connector" who brought artists to Yosemite and Yosemite to Americans, and uses his career as a lens through which to view the contests and debates surrounding the creation of Yosemite, and, by extension, America's emerging ethic of land conservation. Blending environmental and cultural history, she tracks Hutchings's professional trajectory amidst significant changes in nineteenth-century America, from technological advances in printing to the growth of tourism, from the birth of modern environmental movements to battles over public lands. Huntley uses Hutchings's legal battles with the government over ownership of land in the Yosemite Valley to analyze larger battles over public land management and national identity. She also explores the role of urban San Francisco in designating Yosemite a public park, shows how the Civil War transformed Yosemite from a regional icon to a national symbol of post-war redemption, and takes a closer look at Hutchings's relationship with John Muir. The Making of Yosemite sheds light on the role of power, class dynamics, and the late-century ideal of individualism in the shaping of modern America's sacred landscapes. Hutchings emerges here as a visionary communicator who cleverly tapped into midcentury Americans' attitudes toward spectacular scenery to create a sense of place-based identity in the American Far West. Huntley's revisionist approach rediscovers Hutchings as a key player in the histories of American media, tourism, and environmentalism, and suggests new terrain for scholars to consider in writing the histories of our national parks, conservation, and land policy.

14 KRAUSMAN, PAUL R.; BETHANN GARRAMON MERKLE (ILLUSTRATIONS). And Then There Were None: The Demise Of Desert Bighorn Sheep In The Pusch Ridge Wilderness.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 2017. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Once plentiful in the mountains of southern Arizona, by the 1990s desert bighorn sheep were wiped out in the Pusch Ridge Wilderness of the Santa Catalina Mountains as a result of habitat loss and alteration. This book uses their history and population decline as a case study in human alteration of wildlife habitat. When human encroachment had driven the herd to extinction, wildlife managers launched a major and controversial effort to reestablish this population. For more than forty years Paul R. Krausman directed studies of the Pusch Wilderness population of these iconic animals, located in the mountainous outskirts of Tucson. The story he tells here reveals the complex relationships between politics and biology in wildlife conservation. His account of the evolution of wildlife conservation practices includes discussions of techniques and of human attitudes toward predators, fire, and their management. 6 x 9 in., 248 pages, 16 drawings, 7 halftones, 3 maps, 9 tables. Paul R. Krausman was the Boone and Crockett Professor of Wildlife Conservation at the University of Montana and is currently a professor emeritus in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment at the University of Arizona. He is the author or editor of several books, including Introduction to Wildlife Management: The Basics and Wildlife Management and Conservation: Contemporary Principles and Practices.

17 MARSH, SUSAN. A Hunger For High Country: One Woman's Journey To The Wild In Yellowstone Country.
Oregon State University Press, Corvallis: 2014. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Before the 1970s few women were employed by the United States Forest Service. During the 1960s and 70s new environmental and fair employment laws meant that the Forest Service began to hire talented women in professional careers. For the first time women began working as wildlife biologists, geologists, soil scientists, and fisheries biologists for the U.S. Forest Service. A Hunger for High Country is the story of one of these women. Set in the national forests surrounding Yellowstone National Park, A Hunger for High Country is part memoir and part profile of a time and place. Susan Marsh finds her background and values often place her at odds with the agency she works for, and what was supposed to be her dream job in Montana ends in sorrow and frustration after a six year long struggle to fit in. Humbled by her failures, and the part she played in her own downfall, she begins again in the mountains of western Wyoming where she finds refuge and inspiration in nature. Susan Marsh shares with us not only a vivid portrait of what being a professional woman in a land management agency was like during this time period, but also of the Forest Service itself. Encounters with wolves and grizzly bears, outlaws and oddball characters, and moments of beauty inspired by wonder in wild country become the scenes through which Marsh's palpable appreciation for nature are fully rendered on the page. A Hunger for High Country will appeal to anyone interested in the Forest Service, wild land conservation, Yellowstone, and women's experiences in the West. "Like the topography she traverses, Marsh delivers a trail of personal highs and lows. Cheryl Strayed doesn't have anything on Marsh as far as real, authentic, informed passion for the wild." --Todd Wilkinson, Jackson Hole News & Guide "She'll leave you with a profound challenge to be vigilant in the preservation of our wild and scenic places." --Linda Skeen, Wyoming Library Roundup
