The Great Forest : An Appalachian Story Paperback / softback

Edited by Barry M. Buxton, Sam Gray


The very ancient Eastern forest of North America is characterized by an extraordinary variety of plants, animals, and human communities.

Barry M. Buxton refers to this diverse area as the Great Forest in his book A Great Forest: An Appalachian Story, published in 1985.

Buxton examines the natural and cultural landscape of the Appalachian region, and provides a detailed history of the area.

In order to study the ecology of the forest, he includes a narrative of the people behind the forest and how they have impacted and changed the landscape.
