CHRONICLING THE WEST: Thirty Years of Environmental Writing.
Edition: First printing, a trade paperback original.
Seattle: Mountaineers Books, (1996). First edition - A collection of essays on the environmental past and future of the Western United States. Like Abbey and Wallace Stegner and other both established and younger writers, Frome refused to quit pointing fingers and naming names until he felt that important environmental concerns were no longer being sloughed off as second-rate issues. This collection offers environmental criticism at its best. These essays, spanning 30 years, are as relevant today as when they were first published. Included are essays on clearcutting, on destruction in the Bitterroots, on loving our National Parks to death, and "Who's Managing the Managers While They Manage the Wolves?" and much more. Reading list, index. 239 pp. ISBN: 0-898864755.
Condition: Fine in illustrated wrappers.
