The Big Thicket: A Challenge for Conservation
A. Y. Gunter
Jenkins Publishing Co., 1971

The Big Thicket, a unique and beautiful wilderness covering some 350,000 acres of southeastern Texas, became the center of a major national conservation debate. It was not ''Should the Thicket be preserved?'' Rather, it posed numerous questions common to all wild areas threatened by man's encroachment. In this book, ''Pete'' Gunter describes the history and rich diversity of the region and called for immediate action on the part of conservationists and politicians alike before nothing is left to conserve. Inscribed to Dudley Dobie (son of J. Frank Dobie) by Ralph Yarborough. Yarborough was responsible for getting the Thicket designated as a National Preserve.
