This Land Was Saved for You and Me
New Hardcover – Now Available Nationwide!
My new book traces the path from Olmsted’s first wanderings in Yosemite to the signing of The Wilderness Act in 1964.
Along the way, we meet well-known advocates for America’s lands and waters including Gifford Pinchot, Theodore Roosevelt, and Aldo Leopold. But importantly, we also meet many lesser-known people who gave their all to protect forests and wilderness areas before they would be gone forever and ensured that all Americans would retain the benefits of ownership.
Published by Stackpole Books in hardcover format, This Land Was Saved for You and Me is available now from national and local retailers. Click the “order” button below to learn more.
