A Hunger for High Country

Oregon State University Press
A Hunger for High Country, part memoir and part profile of place, is set in the mountains surrounding Yellowstone National Park. As a woman in the US Forest Service, the author finds that her background and values often place her at odds with the agency she works for, and her dream job in Montana ends in sorrow and frustration after six years. Humbled by her failures, she begins again. She comes to understand that technical expertise and excellence do not bring success. The beauty of the wild world shines new light on her personal world and conservation.
Susan Marsh is a naturalist and award-winning writer living in Jackson, Wyoming, with over thirty years’ experience as a wild land steward for the US Forest Service. Her life has been devoted to conservation of public land and a deeper understanding of the relationship between people and wild country.
