America's cultural heritage spans the ages from at least 20,000 years B.C. to the present time. Much of this rich and varied resource is found on the National Forests. It is nonrenewable, fragile, and often highly visible. Artifacts and evidence of that heritage are being destroyed by a class of citizen who, out of inadvertence, curiosity, or greed, persists in vandalizing this part of our history for selfish purposes. Loss of our link with the past through vandalism, theft, or other destructive acts is a crime against all Americans. Prepared in 1981 by the Southwestern Region of the United States Forest Service, this volume covers laws and regulations, criminal case background papers, texts of actual court documents, and case preparation aids.
