A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The twentieth-century environmental movement owes much to a single man: Dav id Brower. Countless natural wonders would have been lost if not for his ef forts and the tremendous energy put forth by organizations he directed and/ or founded (including the Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, and the Earth Island Institute). A tireless defender of wild areas, Brower worked to prot ect iconic places, including the Grand Canyon and the California redwood fo rests, and his work and passion helped define modern environmentalism. For the hundredth anniversary of David Brower's birth, his son Kenneth Brow er, an acclaimed nature writer, has brought together the testimonies of twe nty environmental leaders whose lives and careers were transformed by David Brower; the result is a book in which a repertory company of path-forgers reveal their deepest values and most moving experiences. Reading like an ad venture novel told by the intrepid folks who rode alongside Brower, The Wil dness Within presents illuminating anecdotes about a multifaceted man who c hanged the world, serving as a guide to young people and a bane to bureaucr ats and others more cautious in their approach to the crises at hand. Contributors include: Paul Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb Dave Foreman, founder of Earth First! Harold Gilliam, former San Francisco Chronicle environmental columnist Paul Hawken, founder of Smith and Hawken, and coauthor of Natural Capitalis m Randall Hayes, founder of The Rainforest Action Network Hu.
