What is the New York State Forest Preserve?
What is the Adirondack Park?
What is the Catskill Park?
What does "Forever Wild Mean?" mean
What does "Constitutionally Protected" mean?

The author provides answers to these while tracing the history of the preserves to the present day. Though designed for fourth and fifth graders, this booklet is a good primer for anyone wishing to know about the largest protected area east of the Mississippi.

Norm Van Valkenburgh, a licensed surveyor, is a 32-year veteran of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and has written ten books, including four mysteries and one for children about the fire tower on Hunter Mountain in the Catskills.
