The book is very well written and definitely worth the time to read it.
I had in one book facts about a President, a Governor, the Forest Service, the Buffalo soldiers and the largest forest fire in American History.

Certainly a worthwhile read in terms of the history of nature conservation in the US although somewhat repetitive and choppy.Published 5 hours ago by The Baers
