qIn No Place Distant, author David Havlick presents for the first time a comprehensive and in-depth examination of the more than 550, 000 miles of roads that crisscross our national parks, national forests, Bureau of Land Management lands, and wildlife refuges, considering how they came to be; their ecological, financial, and societal costs; and what can be done to ensure that those roads are as environmentally benign and cost effective as possible, while remaining functional and accessible.q qThroughout, the author argues that roads on our public lands and the surging industry of motorized recreation they support threaten to undermine many of the features that Americans value in their public lands. Ultimately, our views on roads on public lands are inextricably linked to our values as a nation and our values as citizens, and our ideas about how public lands ought to be managed will dictate how we decide to treat roads and motorized access on them.qExecutive Order 12996 of 25 March 1996, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; see also Laughlin and CaudilTs Banking on Nature: The ... with Thomas Hawkins, Realty Specialist, USFWS, Division of Realty, Washington Office, 1 1 August 1999 and 30 October 2001 . ... 16 USC As1608(b) as written in the Forest Service Manual 7703.1, cited in Hammer, The Road-Rippera#39;s Guide to the National Forests, p. 3.
