This book is a general introduction to the ecology forces affecting forests, particularly those in the Western United States. Brown is a naturalist centered in the Northwest with a strong interest in trees. In this book, he discusses how forests reflect the climates and weather they are exposed to, how soil is formed and lost in forests, the effects of fire on forests, how animals and humans affect forests, some examples of plant succession in the West, Western conifers, and Western deciduous trees. End material includes a short list arranged by topic of suggested references, and an index. The book is illustrated with numerous black-and-white photographs and maps.

Brown is very enthusiastic about his subject, and often slips in personal commentary on the wonders of the forest. While much of the book is informative, he occasionally oversteps his expertise, claiming for instance that tamaracks lose their leaves because they "must bring oxygen down to their roots from the leaves, and the leaves are only able to do this during the warm season of the year." Hmmm--if oxygen transport to waterlogged roots were a major function of tamarack needles, we might expect to find some aerenchyma and air canals in the needles and tree, but I've never heard of any with tamaracks. Overall, beginning naturalists in the Western United States may find portions of this book enjoyable, but most readers will need to look elsewhere for more detailed study.

Many references to the West Coast of the US make this book not entirely suited to someone living in Florida. There is a lot to be learned reading through the pages of this book. Great for any hiker or outdoors person!
