A true story about the American economy as experienced by one of the most successful businessmen in the United States during a covering a period of 78 years from 1944 to the present.

In his book, Seeing the Forest for the Trees, Spence reflects on these experiences and his attitudes towards the myriad of changes faced. The book covers such issues as the Pacific Northwest timber economy of the late 20th century, the environmental politics that culminated in the loss of thousands of timber jobs, and the dangers  of corporate consolidation and political power.

A book that speaks to the entrepreneurial spirit and the logistical mind, Seeing the Forest for the Trees is a book that serves as a blueprint and sage for any modern day entrepreneur and business major. With historical accuracy, this book and author have what many business influencers lack today-- real-life, long-lived experience, a history of influence in political policy change, and a wonderful and well-lived life to show for it.
