Photographs by Roy Hamric. Foreword by Walter J. Hickel. The Big Thicket, a unique and beautiful wilderness covering some 350,000 acres of southeastern Texas, has become the center of a major national conservation debate. The issue is not a simple ''Should the Thicket be preserved?'' Rather, it poses numerous questions common to all wild areas threatened by man's encroachment. In this book, ''Pete'' Gunter, Pres of the Big Thicket Assoc, describes the history and rich diversity of the region and calls for immediate action on the part of conservationists and politicians alike before nothing is left to conserve.
