In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS DURING THE years spent working on this manuscript, both in California and the East, I accumulated debts requiring acknowledgment . Many of those active in environmental issues and the redwood controversy gave invaluable information, helped sharpen my analysis, and criticized the manuscript. I want to thank particularly David R. Brower, John B. Dewitt, Newton B. Drury, Richard M. Leonard, and Michael McCloskey. Had not the Save-the-Redwoods League and the Sierra Club freely opened their records, this study would not have been possible. For guidance through various extensive collections, I am obliged to librarians at the Bancroft Library of the University of California, the University of Arizona, the Lyndon B.

Among friends and colleagues whose encouragement and comments I gratefully received were Jim Chapin, Richard C. Davis, Lawrence McLaughlin, James Reed, Harold K. Steen, and Judith Steen. Parts of the book benefitted from critical reading by Ivan Doig, Robert V. Hine, and Donald Swain. As interviewers and chairmen of the Sierra's Club's History Committee, Ann and Ray Lage facilitated this work. The general support of Willa Baum and Amelia Fry Davis meant a great deal to me. With skill and forbearance June Johnson helped in the preparation of the manuscript. The Research Council of Rutgers University contributed financially. The editor of the Journal of Forest History kindly granted permission to use ideas and material that previously appeared in the April 1980 issue under the title, "Conflict in Preservation: The Sierra Club, Save-the-Redwoods League, and Redwood National Park." I thank, too, my parents, Rita and Robert Schrepfer, and my brother xvii xviii ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Steven whose moral and material support has sustained me in the long research effort. Above all, I am indebted to my husband, John Tarter, who contributed to every stage of this project, from the initial conceptualization and research to the final composition.
