9780815632313: The Great Experiment in Conservation: Voices from the Adirondack Park

The Adirondack region of New York State is, in many respects, America's cauldron of conservation. It was there, more than a century ago, that wanton exploitation of forests first aroused concern about human impact on the environment. It was there that Americans first began to set aside lands proclaimed as "forever wild." The establishment of the Adirondack Park created an immense landscape of 6 million acres composed of a mixture of public and private lands in nearly equal proportion. This unprecedented blend of human communities within wild lands makes the Adirondack Park perhaps one of the greatest case studies in conservation and development in U.S. history.

Representing a remarkable achievement in environmental scholarship and drawn from decades of research, The Great Experiment in Conservation captures the wisdom born of the last thirty years of the park's evolution. The editors bring together leading scholars, activists, and practitioners-those who know the Park's origin and the realities of living in a protected area-to narrate this history. Organized into three sections, contributors explore the ecological, cultural, and economic aspects of the region, drawing lessons from successes and failures as they struggle to find the right balance of private interests and public controls. With keen insight and deep passion, the authors reveal the Adirondack Park's rich natural and cultural history in shaping conservation policy, providing vital contributions to the future study of land preservation.

Contributors include: Herman Daly, Bill McKibben, Barbara McMartin, Philip G. Terrie, Amy Vedder, and Bill Weber.

Review:

"One of the most powerful impressions left by the authors of The Great Experiment is just how fragile, complex, and improbable the Adirondack enterprise has been. After more than a century of bickering, tinkering, innovation, and compromise, the Park remains a "cauldron" bubbling with questions about stewardship and conservation."- Adirondack Explorer --Adirondack Explorer

"New York State's Adirondack Park (six million acres) is the largest American park south of Alaska, though only 42 percent of the land is state-owned. This thick collection of essays explores the public-private relationship that has determined its fate since its founding in 1894. More than three dozen authors of diverse backgrounds and interests--academic, political and communal--provide assessments of this experiment in both conservation and democracy. Highly Recommended" -CHOICE review --CHOICE Review

"captures the century and a half of colorful history and vigorous debate surrounding the 6-million-acre swath of upstate New York.... At 600 pages, the collection of essays looks like a scholarly tome. But deft organization and well-written intros to each major section make it remarkably readable. The Great Experiment tells the fascinating and important story of the park, which is large enough to fit Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier and Great Smoky Mountains national parks within its borders. The book's thesis: The Adirondack region is "America's cauldron of conservation," the incubator of ideas and practices central to the country's unique wilderness ethic."- SEVEN DAYS Vermont's Independent Voice --SEVEN DAYS Vermont's Independent Voice

"[E]ngaging and clearly written by people who are passionate about what is at stake." Bioscience --Bioscience

"a compelling portrait of Adirondack Park as the epitome of the American conservation ethic at the turn of the twentieth century"- THE LEADER --THE LEADER
