Heinselman, more than any other man shaped our understanding of the BWCAW ecosystem. This book is his life's work and encompasses his own pioneering research into the fire history of the wilderness as well as a comprehensive overview of the ecology, geology and history of the entire ecosystem. The writing is somewhat technical, but is approachable for a general audience. This book is a must read for anyone interested in the ecology of Northern MN.

A great book from a leading ecologist of the region. The text is precise, thorough and many-sided but nevertheless easy to read. It is concentrated on the BWCAW; the other reserves of the area, Quetico and Voyageurs, getting much less space. Particularly the fire ecology and management problems have been discussed in great depth. The author's expertise and passion can be felt in every chapter.

The chapters are: The Climate of the Boundary Waters; Origin of the Lakes and Landforms; The Forest Communities; Early Forest and Human History; Fire Origin of the Virgin Forests; Forest Ecosystem Processes in Relation to Fire; The Big-Pine Logging Era; The Pulpwood Logging Era; The Dynamic Forest Mosaic Yesterday and Today; Fire-Management Programs to Maintain and Restore the Natural Forest Mosaic; The Role of Mammals in the Ecosystem; The Role of Birds in the Ecosystem; The Lake and Stream Ecosystems; Visitor Impacts on the Ecosystem; Tomorrow's Wilderness. An emotional epilogue concludes the book. There are also appendixes about the conservation history of the region, chronology of the fur trade, the list of plants and animals (not complete) and stand-origin maps (only 15 of 49). 53 good color photos plus many maps and diagrams are included. The common names of plants and animals are used in the text; the Latin names are given in an appendix. The map of virgin forest areas is one missing detail.

This should be the first book to buy for everyone interested in the nature of the Boundary Waters region. I wish this like books would be written for more parks.

I have traveled the BWCA for 30 years, but until reading this book never understood much about the history and ecology of the area. Bud Heinselman spent his life intently studying this magnificent forest, and left us a wonderful legacy in this book.
He spent decades studying the fauna and flora of the BWCA, especially the trees of the forest. Combining that information with his rich knowledge of the more recent history of the BWCA, especially of logging and mining, helps one understand just how the forest has come to be as it is today.
He covers all aspects of the BWCA's ecology: water, rocks, fish, trees, et. al. You may not realize how foreign the smallmouth bass is to the area, or even how close the area came to being developed and lost forever. He provides maps of the area with the forests dated to their most recent burn or logging: you are able to look up your favorite canoe routes and determine what trees are prevalent and why.
One of his major points is that modern fire fighting has altered the natural ecology of the area: as fire has been suppressed, fuel on the forest floor has increased, leading to the potential for more severe "crown" fires which destroy even the ancient white and red pines.
This book is a must-read for all BWCA visitors and deserves a place in the library of anyone that cares about ecology. TH Bracken MD [email protected]

Heinselman's study of fire frequency the Boundary Waters was meticulous, except he missed the uneven distribution of fire depending on the tree species and geology of the particular area, which led to inaccurate conclusions. Unfortunately misleading, erroneouos yet accepted.
