Earth First! Fist, Volume Three

Foreman, Dave, et al., eds., Earth First! 3, no. 1 (1 November 1982). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First!, Dave Foreman writes about the assault on big American wilderness areas in the 1920–30s by the United States Forest Service; LaRue Christie guides readers through the world of Earth Religion; and Bill Devall discusses the book The Fate of the Earth (1982).

Conservationists applaud the Forest Service foresight of fifty years ago. Less well known is the tremendous assault by the Forest Service on large roadless areas during the same period.
