Chinese in the Woods: Lumbering and Logging in the American West

This book by Sue Fawn Chung explores the relationships between East Asians in the U.S. and their environment from the perspective of Chinese who lumbered and logged the West. Often dominant environmental history doesn’t address the presence or participation of people of color, and it is especially hard to find resources about East Asians. We’d recommend this books for conservation organizations interested in understanding the myriad ways in which Americans of different races connect with nature. Buy the book here.
