The author uses the theories of Wendell Berry and Justin Maxson to focus on the historical, social, and environmental issues surrounding the natural resources of Kentucky. According to the author, the Appalachian forest has been poorly managed for generations; its trees have been repeatedly extracted over the past half century and a half. Despite this abuse, the forest and its resources are uniquely positioned to play a key role in building a diverse, resilient, and restorative Appalachian economy.
