"Steward's Fork provides us with a comprehensive and highly readable guide to the natural and human history of the complex and insular Klamath Mountain Region, all done from a wonderfully personal perspective. Agee's love of this land, its waters, and its people is obvious; and this affection, combined with his lifetime of ecological study, brings great credibility to his perspectives on its future stewardship. An essential read for anyone interested in the natural resources, peoples, and future of the Klamath Mountains."—Jerry F. Franklin, coeditor of Towards Forest Sustainability and coauthor of Conserving Forest Biodiversity

"Steward's Fork brilliantly weaves the geological, biological and cultural histories of the Klamath Mountains into a compelling account of place.
In a captivating and easy to read style, Agee demonstrates how place-based ecosystem management can help sustain the diverse needs of the region's unique land and people."—Michael P. Dombeck, Chief Emeritus, U.S. Forest Service and coauthor of From Conquest to Conservation
