Time after time in the painting of a great picture the artist backs away from his work to judge the whole from a distance. To get such a view of American forestry is denied most of us because we cannot wrest ourselves away from our past experience even though we may travel in other countries. It is refreshing therefore to use the eyes and mind of another for such a view. Probably few of us will accept what the author reveals to us, yet his urging that America seek to avoid the mistakes in silviculture and economies committed in other countries cannot go amiss.
