This essay is often considered a children’s book, The Young Forester is following the young Kenneth, in his quest to become a forester. After he received his father’s permission to go west to work with a friend of childhood, Ken sees a devastating operation that cuts down the trees and leaves nothing behind. Throughout the text, Ken struggled with woodcutters to preserve the Penetrari Forest and the future of the industry. The book is written at a time when the United States government began to understand conservatism in communicating with the natural world; history is spinning around the same problems that many people have experienced. Between the main story, the strong characters and the perfectly detailed environment, this book made me be a forester.
