Contents Notes
Foreword / Elvis J. Stahr -- In search of Guy Bradley -- The president and the forester -- The fight for the land -- The fight for wildlife -- God's plenty and what became of it -- The spirit and the flesh. The story of men and women who shaped the conservation movement in America, from the late 19th century to the present, is a story of controversy, failure, and intermittent triumph. Ironically, many of the dedicated leaders of the earliest animal protection movements were hunters themselves, motivated as much by a desire to enhance their sport as by conscience. Many more worked simply out of moral conviction. Often using their own words, Frank Graham tells of Guy Bradley, Gifford Pinchot, John Muir, Steve Mather, William Temple Hornaday, Rosalie Edge, Rachel Carson, and more.
