The National Audubon Society: Speaking for Nature
features an unrivaled assemblage of photographs celebrating the successful efforts made to preserve nature's inhabitants - from herons to wolves, whooping cranes to whales, condors to caribou - and the precious lands they inhabit. It also features vintage photography and reproductions of John James Audubon's paintings for a historical perspective.
For 100 years, the National Audubon Society has been dedicated to "speaking for nature." This book hails its conservation efforts with informative essays and a chronology. Each chapter focuses on a specific decade and the environmental issues that defined it. The contributors are prominent conservation writers, and the text is eloquently brought together by editor Les Line.
