086571410X 163 pages. Can profits, people and place co-exist in harmony? Does conservation of nature necessarily mean a loss of jobs? Deals head-on with the massive ongoing threats to the world's ecosystems. Examines a number of case studies from different sectors of the Pacific Northwest and comes up with some surprising answers. Explodes the spotted owl myth by showing that employment and economic activity actually increased. Shows that future job opportunities exist when local residents steward their resource base, not when non-locals have the power to plunder it.
