Description

This chapter is a compendium of six papers written to add further depth to our national assessment of Wilderness, begun with the previous chapter. The first three papers summarize research and experience about the identity of Wilderness users and how Wilderness is used, use of Wilderness for personal growth, and changes of Wilderness values. The second three papers summarize the management situations and policies of three of the federal Wilderness management agencies-the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of land Management, and the National Park Service. With these papers much can be learned about the significance of and issues surrounding Wilderness in the United States.
