The Paradox of Preservation: Wilderness and Working Landscapes at Point Reyes National Seashore by Laura Alice Watt

Point Reyes National Seashore has a long history as a working landscape, with dairy and beef ranching, fishing, and oyster farming; yet, since 1962 it has also been managed as a National Seashore.
