Ted Catton’s American Indians and National Forests is the winner of the 2017 Forest History Society’s Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Book Award. The prize “rewards superior scholarship in forest and conservation history” and goes to “an author who has exhibited fresh insight into a topic and whose narrative analysis is clear, inventive, and thought-provoking.”
American Indians and National Forests shows how tribal nations and the U.S. Forest Service have dealt with important changes in forest ownership and forest use. Author Theodore Catton expertly covers two centuries of interplay to offer the first-ever look at the changing relationships between these two important groups of forest stewards.
