"Forest Management and Planning arose from our desire to provide for students in forestry and natural resource management programs a focused treatment of the topics that are important for upper-level forest management courses. This book presents an extensive overview of the methodology one might use to develop forest and natural resource management plans, and to analyze a number of resource issues that are encountered by managers."--

Lavishly illustrated, and supplemented with expert analyses and interviews, this book offers ample proof of designers? value for society.

The fair chase : the epic story of hunting in America
Dray, Philip, author
New York : Basic Books, 2018
Introduction: The nature of the beast -- The prophet -- When good Queen Bess met Daniel Boone -- "Let us have more hunters" -- Hunters go west -- Forest and stream -- Arming the hunters -- Sportsman's paradise -- Buffalo Bill, Custer, and Texas Jack -- The new type of goodness -- "Times have changed, and we must change also" -- What is nature, what is man? -- The trophic crusade -- the guns of autumn -- Epilogue: A complex inheritance.

"Embodying the classic American traits of resourcefulness and rugged independence, the hunter looms larger than life in our national mythology, occupying a unique--and uniquely fraught--place in the American psyche. Popularized in the nineteenth century as a way to reconnect "soft" urban Americans with nature, for many years sport hunting was the national pastime of Americans from all walks of life, while it became a common theme in literature, art, and design. Fair chase, a code of hunting ethics emphasizing respect and restraint toward wildlife, inspired the conservation movement. Yet, hunting is linked to some less-than-honorable aspects of American history. Pioneers emulated Native American hunting methods even as they usurped their hunting grounds; market hunters drove many animal species toward extinction. Today, questions regarding wildlife protection, animal rights, the abuse of the fair chase ethos, and the sport's sometimes uneasy relationship with gun culture, continue to stir debate. In The Fair Chase, Philip Dray tells the sweeping saga of hunting in America from Daniel Boone to Annie Oakley, from Theodore Roosevelt to Ernest Hemingway. Hunting's history has much to tell us about our country's legends, its faith in manifest destiny, its evolving views on nature and wildlife, its love of sport and notions of self-reliance--in short, about nothing less than the shaping of our national character."--Jacket flaps.
