"The first two chapters go over tree ecology, anatomy, and physiology. The rest of the book describes how the pre-Columbian Americans used trees, and then follows the European settlers as they moved across the country, consuming an apparently infinite resource, up through present day conservation efforts and environmental threats to our remaining forests. The information is encyclopedic, over 400 photographs are striking, and the writing style is often elegant." Voice Youth Advocates

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[V. 1] Reflecting on a situation lets you put the problem in its place. Problems have a way of returning if you don't have a grasp of the situation. Examples include an inept hotel doorman, the sport of orienteering, a wind prospecter and an artist/builder. -- [v. 2] Every problem waits for the right information. Solutions come when you find the facts that fit. Examples include a misguided actor, ice climbing, an archaeologist, speed skiing and Norwegian fishermen. -- [v. 3] Things are not always what they seem. The bigger and more complex the puzzle the greater the need to put it into a form that you can play with and understand. Examples include an inept wallpaper hanger, art students, an ecologist and American ski jumpers. -- [v. 4] To get what you want you have to know what you want. When you have a clear picture of the outcome, you can find the quickest and most efficient way there. Examples include an inept sign painter, a computer scientist, stone masons at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City and building demolition experts. -- [v. 5] On every voyage someone has to take command. Successful voyages begin with planning. Managing a problem from beginning to end is the way to master the challenge. Examples include a typically misguided American family trying to leave on vacation and a Makah Indian wood carver. -- [v. 6] When you can't be sure, be close. Estimating can save you time and keep you out of trouble. Examples include an inept pie factory employee, a marine biologist, the census of the Peoples Republic of China and avalanche safety experts. -- [v. 7] This series, dealing with mathematics and problem solving, examines various aspects of investigation using humorous and serious examples. Explains that the first answer to a problem may not necessarily be the best. Examples include two inept piano movers, tournament boomerang throwers and investigators exploring the Anasazi solar calendars
