Save the rainforest - not a question but a statement of fact. What good environmentalist would ever dispute it? Bruce Braun does. He goes so far as to ask, what is the rainforest? Who defines it? He examines the various practices-social, discursive, and political-through which Canada's West Coast forests have been given meaning and made the site of intense political and ideological struggle. Departing from other work on environmental politics that assumes the "forest" is a constant, The Intemperate Rainforest traces the way West Coast landscapes have been viewed and controlled by explorers, foresters, environmentalists, artists, scientists, adventure travelers, and Native peoples.
