At my university we have numerous environmental science degrees as well as other natural sciences (especially natural resources and forestry) so are able to take a class in law related to forestry on a state and national level for our political science cred. The professor I had for the class made us read a book from the 90s called In a Dark Wood by Alston Chase for the legal and historical relevance (though the science is totally OFF and outdated, just be warned on that point if you read it, that the author is a doctor of philosophy not a scientist and that the book is 25 years old)...it's definitely worth a read if you're interested in the Pacific Northwest, forestry, or the roots of environmental political conflict in the United States.

Anyway, I've been looking up things related to the true story, and found this old video of Redwood Summer from 1990. It's priceless. Enjoy.
