18 Ecodefense: A Field Guide to Monkeywrenching
Bill Haywood Abbzug Press 0963775103 / 9780963775108 PAPERBACK New 
0963775103 Ned Ludd Books published the first two editions, with Abbzug Press publishing a third edition. book was first published in 1985. Much of the inspiration for the book, as well as the term "monkeywrenching", came from Edward Abbey's 1975 novel Monkey Wrench Gang. Other inspiration for the book likely came from the 1972 book Ecotage!, which was published by the group Environmental Action and was in turn inspired by the actions of an activist in the Chicago, Illinois area who called himself "Fox," and engaged in such vigilante actions to protect the environment as plugging smokestacks. Much of the actual content for Ecodefense came from the "Dear Ned Ludd" column in the newsletter of the group Earth First! during the 1980s. Monkeywrenching is a form of ecodefense. So are temporary restraining orders and tree sitting, as well as non-violent blockade and civil disobedience. Other forms include tree spiking, and billboarding. These are more controversial because they involve destruction, vandalism, and/or the potential for injury. ?Tentatively called Ecodefense: A Handbook on the Militant Defense of the Earth, the publication was to be a radical environmental version of William Powell's Anarchist Cookbook. In its final form, brought out by Foreman's own Ned Ludd Books (suitably named after the nineteenth-century British worker who destroyed supposedly labor-saving machinery), Ecodefense: A Field Guide To Monkeywrenching gave practical , detailed instructions on how to decommission bulldozers, pull out survey stakes, spike trees, and generally harass and delay resource industry plans. It was an immediate success; dog eared copies of it could be found in the backpacks of young environmental militants literally throughout the world. This kind of popularity led Oregon's Williamette National Forest supervisor Michael Kerrick to denounce the book in a white paper presented at a congressional hearing, in which he peevishly threatened to 'close the entire [national forest logging] area to unauthorized entry' if the ecotage described in the book took place. As good as his word, Kerrick soon thereafter introduced the controversial and legally questionable policy of closing national forests to the public whenever environmental protests were expected. It is no exaggeration to say, therefore, that Ecodefense changed forever the way public lands policy was made in this country and perhaps even abroad. Ecotage was, as Getty learned, a new factor in making environmental policy.

69 Rural Surveillance: A Cop's Guide to Gathering Evidence in Remote Areas
Ritch, Van Paladin Press 1581603800 / 9781581603804 PAPERBACK New 
1581603800 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 120 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. A covert rural surveillance operation is not a working camping trip it's a risky undertaking that can't be compared to staking out an urban area. Developing a team that can successfully gather intelligence in the backwoods for hours, days or weeks at a time requires time, effort, support and commitment, plus a strong, visionary leader to see the value in creating such a team of experts. Van Ritch knows the importance of such operations. After more than 20 years in the U.S. Army, the former Special Forces officer and counterintelligence agent came home to address the dire need he saw for local law enforcement agencies to be able to cover all the ground in their jurisdictions. He wrote this book as a guide to any organization or individual who needs to conduct searches or surveillance in rural and remote environments. In it, you will learn how to plan a mission and set goals, assemble a team, survive the environment, practice tactical movement, master camouflage, maintain constant security and more. Crime doesn't stop where the pavement ends. If you want to protect every corner of your territory, you need the information in this guide Van Ritch served 22 years in the U.S. Army, where he developed its SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) school. After his army career, he began training law enforcement officers at the North Carolina Justice Academy. While observing federal, state and local law enforcement agencies struggle with the hunt for Eric Rudolph, the prime suspect in the 1996 Olympics bombing in Atlanta, Ritch determined that successfully operating in rural areas needed to be a training priority.

96 Wildwood Wisdom
Jaeger, Ellsworth Shelter Publications 0936070129 / 9780936070124 PAPERBACK New 
0936070129 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 516 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. This comprehensive and beautifully illustrated handbook was written by Ellsworth Jaeger in 1945. Jaeger was a faculty member of the Buffalo Museum of Science and an authority on American Indian lore and camping. Wildwood Wisdom is dedicated not just to the spirit of our ancestral buckskin men, but also to the native Americans who willingly taught the white newcomers the basic necessities of life and survival in this new land. Jaeger spent many summers in the outdoors and led woodcraft groups throughout the country. His book is addressed mainly to campers, with information on clothes and gear, making fires, and a wonderful section on shelters made with handgathered materials. But it can also be read for historical accuracy, a well-researched account of life in America in the 1800s, when survival depended not only on coping with daily perils, but also on one s ability to use wits as well as hands for survival. There s much more on providing life s basics: food, shelter and clothing. How to skin a bear, blaze a trail, cook flapJacks on a flat rock. Plants that are edible, plants that are poisonous, and plants that are medicinal. How to portage a canoe, pack a mule or build a bed in the woods out of willows..wisdom needed for survival in the woods when they were wild. Jaeger wrote this book during the latter part of World War II, when..fear, dishonor, horror, treachery and death filled people s minds. At such a time, he felt, knowing something about this great American folklore was increasingly important to people of this land. At such a time..the serenity and peace of the wilderness were never more dear to the hearts of men. Now, 60 years later, one might say that Jaeger s premise is even more relevant. In these times of great international turmoil, when the earth s very life-sustaining atmosphere is threatened by a multitude of human-generated forces, this tribute to the wisdom of a much less energy-intensive way of life could provide example as well as inspiration.
