High Uintas Bookshelf

A High Uintas Bookshelf

In this column we’ll list 2-4 interesting articles, books or the like that have caught our attention. They aren’t necessarily recent or recently read-- sort of a random compilation. Within a year, hopefully, we’ll have an established and detailed reading list. It won’t be complete without your additions. Please send suggestions and a descriptive sentence or two.

A High Uintas Bookshelf

In this column, we'll list 3-4 interesting articles, books or the like that have caught our attention. They aren't necessarily recent or recently read-- sort of a random compilation. In December 2000 we anticipate releasing a detailed reading list. It won't be complete without your additions. Please send suggestions and a descriptive sentence or two.

This month's reviews are by Dick Carter.

World Watch, July/August 2000. This edition of World Watch harbors a terrific 12 page review and analysis, "Amphibia Fading, why the Amphibians?" The conclusion is profound-- protecting amphibians by protecting amphibians. We must face ahead on the issues of climate change, forest loss, pollution, invasive species and our evergrowing and consuming population.

Issues in Ecology. "Applying Ecological Principles to Management of the U.S. National Forests," Aber et al. Number 6, Spring 2000. Ecological Society of America. A meaningful 20 page primer of forest ecology, referenced to the hilt, filled with photographs and management recommendations for the Forest Service. Along with articles reviewed in the August HUPC Lynx bookshelf one can become ecologically literate with these good documents.

Indian Tales. Hill and Wang, Inc. 1953. Jamie deAngulo. My favorite prayer comes from this book, "Then Bear called, Good night, mountains, you must protect us tonite..." It is just a pleasant read, and a remarkable juxtaposition of human and nonhuman animals. Worth reading over and over.
