In 1988 Richard Manning, a reporter for the Montana Missoulian, blew the whistle on two out-of-state logging companies that had clear-cut a swath the size of Delaware through the forests of the Northern Rockies. Manning's articles won his paper an award, but cost him his job. This courageous book is his story as well as a report on the destruction of America's woodlands and its cover-up.
