Challenge of the Big Trees: A Resource History of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

Author: Lary Dilsaver (Author), William Tweed (Author)

In Challenge of the Big Trees authors Lary Dilsaver and William Tweed chronicle the one-hundred-year-history of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks located in California’s southern Sierra Nevada mountains. The authors contend that Sequoia, General Grant and Kings Canyon national parks have “repeatedly played critical roles in the evolution of modern park philosophy and management” and were “birthplaces of policy.”
