He is a well-respected nature writer who lives in western Montana. His
books include: Wild to the Heart, The Deer Pasture, Winter: Notes From
Montana, The Ninemile Wolves, The Grizzly Years, and The Book of Yaak. He
also wrote a good piece for Sierra magazine in the July/August 96 issue
called "Field Truths" which was about the "Salvage Logging Rider" of 1995.

The original post was a forwarded January 16 editorial he wrote for the
New York Times advocating the closure of roadless areas (1000 acres and
larger) to road building and logging.
