Chapter Summary

This section of the book presents a list of reference books and articles relevant to the analysis of the painful experience of Goryōrin in Yamanashi Prefecture. The book discusses the technical aspects of forest operations as they developed and changed during the fifty-eight-year life of the woodland system. Looking briefly at the geography, Yamanashi Prefecture occupies some 450,000 chobu in the southeastern quadrant of Japan's sharply incised central cordillera. Except for the northerly slope of Mt. Fuji, which lies along its southern flank, and the lovely but small (roughly 20,000 chobu ) triangular Kofu Basin, the prefecture consists of a maze of acutely upthrust ridge lines separated by the rushing waters of two highly articulated, dendritic river systems.
