Uncovers the early twentieth-century history rich with precedents for the New Deal in forest, park, and agricultural policy. This title explores the redevelopment of the Appalachian Mountains from the 1910s through the 1930s, finding in this region a changing paradigm of land use planning that laid the groundwork for the national New Deal.
