" The book is designed by one of the leading experts in governmental
preservation policies to steer citizens in its use to achieve specific
preservation goals. Since the NHPA is often ignored by governmental
agencies and developers alike, this guide explains the law for laymen
and how it can be utilized. King also explains the quirky role of the
National Register of Historic Places and the importance of consultation
in stopping "progress." Much of this action centers on section 106 of
the NHPA,and King describes the processs any one can use to protect
historic properties. It's a handy volume for those of us interested in
saving the past. "

"Without Dr. Thomas F. King's intellect, understanding, passion and informative books concerning the intricacies of U.S. preservation law, there would be no hope for average citizens to understand the complex/destructive world of the developer, their manipulation of the National Historic Preservation Act, 106 Review, mis-use of state/federal agencies, departments of transportation, Army Corps of Engineers, state and local planners for the most profitable assault on the American people since the ruthless days of the robber barons… It is my hope that Dr. King's experiences will help all people begin to understand what we are losing every day in the name of progress.

"No one understands the section 106 review process as well as Tom King does! His many years of experience and esoteric understanding of the 106 review process are unparalleled. Tom's expert advice on steering us through this maze of regulations has been invaluable in trying to save Abo Canyon and our traditional ranching way of life from the ravages of a very destructive train-tracking project.
