This Land Was Saved for You and Me

Native Maine author Jeffrey Ryan will present highlights from his newly-released hardcover book This Land Was Saved for You and Me at the Windham Public Library. “This Land” traces the development of America’s public lands by identifying a series of critical generational handoffs — from Frederick Law Olmsted to Gifford Pinchot to the generation of foresters that would lead the movement to preserve some lands as forever wild. Ryan’s book features many notable names, but importantly many lesser-known people whose efforts broke new ground by recognizing that America’s resources were not inexhaustible and calling for a means of protecting and managing them before it was too late. Ryan’s appearance comes just before the national book launch for This Land Was Saved for You and Me, to be held at the US Fish & Wildlife Service’s national headquarters. He will have copies of his books available for signing.
