"Explore the wonder, politics, and wilderness of one of America's most revered and popular national parks with conservation writer Gary Ferguson. In Hawks Rest, Ferguson spends a wild season as a cabin tender for the Forest Service, hiking 140 miles to the most remote corner of the lower forty-eight states. Over the course of three months, he encounters wilderness outfitters doing all it takes to keep their business running, troubled teenagers discovering both independence and community in nature, and solitary souls happy to find the welcoming light of his cabin after long treks in the backcountry. With a new introduction by Ferguson, this edition offers fresh insight into the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone and the importance of wilderness preservation in the face of today's changing climate"--Back cover.
