Before Forks, a small town on Washington's Olympic Peninsula, became famous as the location for Stephenie Meyer's Twilight book series, it was the self-proclaimed "Logging Capitol of the World" and ground zero in a regional conflict over the fate of old growth forests. Since Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist William Dietrich wrote the first edition ofThe Final Forestin 1992, logging in Forks has given way to tourism, especially related to the vampire theme in the Twilight books, but the town's forest products history should not be forgotten. A new introduction recounts how forest policy and practices have changed since the early 1990s. Dietrich also tells us what has happened in Forks and where the actors who were so important to the timber wars are now. William Dietrich, a former science writer for theSeattle Times, is the author ofNorthwest Passage: The Great Columbia RiverandNatural Grace: The Charm, Wonder, and Lessons of Pacific Northwest Animals and Plants.His historical and action thrillers have been translated into 28 languages.
