The 'A to Z' Timber Sale - How to Spell The Death of a Forest

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Wed, 04/01/2015

Ever heard of an ‘A to Z’ timber sale?  You know…when a private logging company pays off the Forest Service for the freedom to “manage” the land.?

No.
You haven’t heard of it and that is exactly what the timber industry needs – secrecy, complacency ignorance – in order to get away with the murder  of a forest. 
        Since the Forest Service has been paid a million dollars for the
contract in which Vaagen Brothers Timber will do all the work associated with the sale,
perhaps the FS will actually make a profit. This aspect needs to be further
investigated. If that is the case, what a motivator for the agency!

Literary Mole Larry Bowlden reviews Jane Gardam's trilogy Old Filth. Although Jane Gardam was not published until she was in her 40s, she has published twenty-five books in the past thirty years, and has won many prizes for both children's literature and adult fiction. Larry focuses in on her famous trilogy,Old Filth; filth is an acronym for 'Failed in London? Try Hong Kong', and is about so-called Raj orphans who return to work in Hong Kong in their adult lives. Surprisingly, all three volumes of the trilogy cover the same time period, and essentially the same characters, but more detail is included in each, and the lives of minor characters are stitched into the story as previously told.
