Forest Follies by Ben Parfitt

Logging, milling and other industrial practices have depleted forest ecosystems across Canada. Written in 1998, Forest Follies examines how the industry has affected environmental conditions like salmon health, wildlife populations and water quality. Ben Parfitt argues that a more diverse and sustainable approach to resource extraction will result in a healthier ecosystem, as well as a stronger economy.
