The author was stationed in southwestern France as an instructor in the Forestry Department of the U. S. Army sponsored Biarritz American University. During each of the three terms the university operated, from August, 1945 to March, 1946, field trips for forestry students to Les Landes were arranged with the French forest officials. Monsieur Louis Barriety, forest inspector of Biarritz, accompanied each class of American-soldier students to the dune area, and explained in detail how the dune was built and maintained, and its effect, direct and widespread, on one and a half million people. This inspiring story long familiar to American foresters is here dramatically retold. See also Gooch, Winslow L. Present conditions in the pine forests of Les Landes, France. Jour.
