Author Jeff Forester describes how humans have occupied and managed the northern borderlands of Minnesota, from tribal burning to pioneer and industrial logging to evolving conceptions of wilderness and restoration forestry. On the surface a story of Minnesota’s borderlands, The Forest for the Trees more broadly explores the nation’s history of resource extraction and wilderness preservation, casting forward to consider what today’s actions may mean for the future of America’s forests.
Jeff will be reading from his book at Magers & Quinn Booksellers on Thursday, May 14, at 7:30. We hope you an attend.
Details on this and all our upcoming readings are events page.--David E
