Tom Hulst titled his book "The Footpaths of Justice William O. Douglas: A Legacy of Place". Initially, I assumed the book would be focused on Douglas, his love of the Pacific NorthWest, and what he did to preserve the land he treasured so dearly.

However, the book was a mix of a biographical sketch of Douglas, replete with chapters discussing his views on privacy, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion; a personal memoir from Tom Hulst discussing his travels and explorations in the lands Douglas fought so hard to preserve; and a natural history expounding upon the beauty of the region.

I found the book engaging and enjoyable, even though it was very different than what I had originally anticipated. I must say that some chapters were too much memoir for me, hence the lower rating. When Hulst did focus on either of the other two topics (biographical sketch or nature), he did the topic tremendous justice.

By explaining who William O. Douglas was (and not just the stodgy jurist some people perceive him to be) and mixing it with the land Douglas loved, we have a good book. If the personal memoir was reduced and/or removed, we would probably have a great book here.

The legacy of former Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas extends to law, philosophy and Conservation. All of those aspects of this famous man and his writings are hollow without the reflection he gathered upon the many hikes and trails he visited throughout his live. Now, Tom Hulst has given us insight and understanding of the walking Bill Douglas in his new book, "The Footpaths of William O. Douglas, A Legacy of Place". Any study of this great thinker will eventually come around to his footpaths and Hulst's book gives us nuts and bolts access in understanding Douglas and his time. I recommend this book to hikers who have never heard of Douglas or scholars seeking new insight into Douglas' writings. This book is about what Douglas was really about.
