Warren Dean chronicles the chaotic path to what could be one of the greatest natural disasters of modern times: the disappearance of the Atlantic Forest. Based on a great range of documentary and scientific resources,With Broadax and Firebrand is an enormously ambitious book. More than a history of a tropical forest, or of the relationship between forest and humans, it is also a history of Brazil told from an environmental perspective.

His final book, With Broadax and Firebrand, is magisterial, a tour de force. It is Dean's most sweeping work, as humane as his earlier writing and as cogent. The book is so deftly written that at times it reads like a novel or a personal memoir ' not unlike the nuanced, passionate travel writings of Bruce Chatwin, another sage observer of the region whose life ended prematurely.

With Broadax and Firebrand book. Warren Dean was a pioneer and he wrote about Atlantic Forest history in a broad scale (time and space) that is unmatched till the present. These are the merits of the book, and they are huge. However it has the main flaw of considering the forest history only as one of destruction. And I think that the non-destruction (construction?)aspect of Atlantic forest history is of great importance. Most brazilians live in and from the activities that are developed on a ground that was Atlantic Forest.

This book is very detailed in the History of Brazil's natural land; past and present. Its chapters sometimes carry on for too long just to state something that could have been said in a few words. Great vocabulary, though!

To read this book is to learn how a colonization exterminated the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Laws, economics process, natives agriculture, how the urbanization burned the forest and fens. Except the first chaptre, about the evolution of the forest by geologic times, all is perfect.
I use this book in my class - Geography of Brazil and the students love it. (...)

Having actually lived in the country and visited the Amazon rain forest, this depiction of the destruction of the Atlantic rainforest and the effects there is highly factual and rather interesting. It is one of the only successful ecological histories about a forest! If you want a good read about the disappearance of one of Brazil's most historical aspects, then this book is for you.
