New Hardcover!

My new book traces the path from Frederick Law 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.
